THE SUNDAY OF ORTHODOXY

Vespers, Tone 8
  Come, let us cleanse ourselves by almsgiving and acts of mercy to the poor, not sounding a trumpet or making a show of our charity. Let not our left hand know what our right hand is doing; let not vainglory scatter the fruit of our almsgiving; but in secret let us call on Him that knows all secrets: Father, forgive us our trespasses, for Thou lovest mankind.
