Fourth Sunday of Great Lent: Sunday of St. John Climacus (March 18)

As ever-blooming fruits, you offer the teachings of your God-given book, O wise John, most blessed, while sweetening the hearts of all them that heed it with vigilance; for it is a ladder from the earth unto Heaven that confers glory on the souls that ascend it and honor you faithfully.


"Our life without repentance is nonsense; our life without forgiveness is nonsense; our life without remembering all the blessings from God is nonsense. Jesus died for us, but have we died for Him or for anyone or have we died to our sins? If we don’t die, there is no life"--His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
