Kontakion in the Second Tone
SAINT OR FEAST POSTED THIS DATE 2009(with 2008's link here also:
NOTE: This was sent to me via e-mail. It is a translation of an article that appeared in Русская народная линия (Russian People’s Line). The link to the original can be found here.
I also realize that this was posted on the "Voices from Russia" blog, which I do not endorse in any way. The article has merit, however, regardless of it being posted on that site.
And I also understand this to be a canonical Orthodox Bishop serving in Russia who supports Patriarch Kirill, so these statements are not coming from a Bishop part of a schismatic group outside the Church.
Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.Now we must recognize that the power to forgive does not lie with us but with God. And in order to commune with Him to receive this grace, we pray. We more fully learn how to pray when we give alms and fast. We also can reverse any of these or interchange them and recognize that they all tie into and lead into each other.
