August 21st Moleben for Life

Christ is in our midst!

We will have our monthly moleben at Sts. Constantine and Elena next Wednesday the 21st at 6 pm.  See you then!  

From the Annual Dormition Prayer Vigil to End Abortion

O most merciful, all gracious and compassionate Lord Jesus Christ our Savior, Son of God: we entreat Thee, most gracious Master: look with compassion upon Thy children who have been condemned to death by the unjust judgment of men. And as Thou hast promised to bestow the heavenly kingdom on those born of water and the Spirit, and those who, in blamelessness of life, have been translated unto Thee; and Who said, “Suffer the little children to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven”—we humbly pray, according to Thy unfailing promise: Grant the inheritance of Thy kingdom to the multitude of spotless infants who have been cruelly murdered in the abortuaries of this land; for Thou art the resurrection and the life and the repose of all Thy servants and of these innocents, O Christ our God.

We beseech Thee, turn the hearts of those who seek to destroy Thy little ones. Pour forth Thy healing grace upon them, that they may be convicted in their hearts and turn from their evil ways. Remember all of them that kill our children as on the altars of Moloch, and render not unto them according to their deeds, but according to Thy great mercy, and convert them: the unbelieving to true faith and piety, and the believing that they may turn from evil and do good.

O Holy Master, Almighty Father and pre-eternal God, Who alone made and directs all things; Who rises up quickly against the evil of the impious ones; Who, by providence, teaches Thy people preservation of justice and the obliteration of evil on earth; Who condescends to raise up warriors for the protection of the people of God: we entreat Thee with compunction, that as Thou didst give David power to defeat Goliath, and as Thou didst condescend through Judas Maccabeus, to seize victory from the arrogant pagans who would not call on Thy Name; so too, grant protection to us, Thy servants against the enemies rising against us as we go forth to do spiritual battle against the evil one and those who do his will rather than Thine.

For Thou art a merciful God, and lovest mankind, and unto Thee do we ascribe glory, to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Christ is Risen!
Χριστός Ανέστη!
Христос Воскресе!
Christ is risen from the dead trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!
And unto us He has given eternal life. Let us worship His resurrection on the third day.

Glory to Christ’s Holy resurrection!

Christ is Born, Glorify Him!

Christ is Born, Glorify Him!

“He Who holds all creation in the hollow of His hand
today is born of a Virgin.
He Whose essence none can touch
is wrapped in swaddling clothes as a mortal man.
God, Who in the beginning fashioned the heavens,
lies in a manger.
He Who rained manna on His people in the wilderness
is fed on milk from His mother’s breasts.
The Bridegroom of the Church summons the Magi,
and the Son of the Virgin accepts their gifts.
We worship Your Birth, O Christ.
We worship Your Birth, O Christ.
We worship Your Birth, O Christ.
Show us also Thy divine Theophany!”

~ Stichera of the Ninth Hour, Nativity Hymn

Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!
