FROM ST. NIKOLAI VELINIROVIC, HOMILIES VOLUME II: SUNDAYS AFTER PENTECOST
Repentance is the abandoning of all false paths that have been trodden by men’s feet, and men’s thoughts and desires, and a return to the new path: Christ’s path. But how can a sinful man repent unless he, in his heart, meets with the Lord and knows his own shame? Before little Zacchaeus saw the Lord with his eyes, he met Him in his heart and was ashamed of all his ways.
ODE III FROM THE KATAVASIAS
OF THE MEETING OF THE LORD IN THE TEMPLE
As the firm support of those who hope in You firmly, O Lord, now confirm the Church that You established, which You purchased for yourself with Your precious Blood.
