Beheading of John the Baptist (August 29)

The memory of the righteous is celebrated with songs of praise, but the Lord's testimony is sufficient for thee, O Forerunner. Thou wast shown indeed to be the most honorable of the prophets, for in the waters thou didst baptize Him Who had been proclaimed. After suffering with joy in behalf of the truth, thou didst proclaim even to those in hades the God Who appeared in the flesh, Who takest away the sin of the world, and granteth us the Great Mercy. (Apolytikion in Tone 2)

"Each parish is like a gateway to the Kingdom of Heaven. Do you desire an eternal life in Paradise? Then the road naturally leads to the Church."-- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
