"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."

Fifth Friday of the Great Fast



APOSTICHA OF FRIDAY IN THE FIFTH WEEK
OF THE GREAT FAST
 C
 Matins, Tone  8
Thou wast crucified with the thieves, O Christ our God, and Thou hast healed man’s nature by Thy wounds. I have fallen among invisible robbers, among bodiless thieves; they have stripped me of virtue and grievously wounded me; O despise me not: none of the saints can heal me; I lie half dead and have but little life remaining in me. Thou art my only hope, who hast restored the dead to life: bind up my wounds, pouring upon me the oil of Thy compassion, for Thou alone lovest mankind.
