Come Back to Paradise: Service Schedule for First Week of Great Lent 2016

12 Mar

“This is the acceptable time. This is the time for repentance. Let us offer our virtues to God as gifts, and set aside the works of darkness, by putting on the armor of light as the apostle Paul proclaims. As the Lord killed the enemy by fasting, so let us also come to destroy his arrows and spears, saying: get behind me, Satan! when he comes to tempt us.”

—Matins of Tuesday of the First Week of Lent
