The Nicene Creed

 

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Only-begotten, Begotten of the Father before all ages. Light of Light, True God of True God, Begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made: Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried; and on the third day He rose, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again, with glory to judge the living and the dead, whose Kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, and Giver of Life, Who proceedeth from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the Prophets; And I believe in One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the remission of sins. I look for the Resurrection of the dead, and the life of the age to come. Amen.

Beginning of Great Lent

O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust of power, and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love to Thy servant. Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own sins and not to judge my brother; for Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen. (The Prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian)
 

Great Lent: REMEMBER ME, O LORD, WHEN THOU COMEST INTO THY KINGDOM!

 

Wisdom

"Humble people have no needless or petty quarrels with others, because they have no egocentric desires to always have their own way. They are not self-seeking; for they know that it is God’s will, not their own, that they should strive for. Therefore, humility naturally brings with it unity, both with God and with our fellows." -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
