Fourth Friday of the Great Fast



APOSTICHA OF FRIDAY IN THE FOURTH WEEK
OF THE GREAT FAST
C
Matins, Tone  4
O crucified Lord, who searchest out the truth and knowest all secrets, Thou hast condemned the Pharisee who was overcome by vainglory and thought that he was justified by virtues gained through his own works; but Thou hast justified the Publican who prayed with compunction, and whom the Pharisee condemned. Make us emulate the Publican in his repentance and count us worthy of forgiveness, for Thou lovest mankind.
