Beginning of the Great Lent. Tone three.
Great Lent. By Monastic Charter - Full abstention from food
The Scripture ReadingsIsaiah 1:1-20 (6th Hour)
The First Week of Great Lent, Kontakion, Tone VI —
My soul, my soul, arise! Why are you sleeping? The end is drawing hear, and you will be confounded. Awake, then, and be watchful, that Christ our God may spare you, Who is everywhere present and fills all things.
Venerable Father Auxentius, Troparion, Tone I —
A dweller in the desert, an angel in the flesh/ and a wonder-worker wast thou shown to be,/ O our God-bearing father Auxentius./ Receiving heavenly gifts through fasting, vigils and prayers,/ thou healest the infirm/ and the souls of those who with faith have recourse unto thee/ Glory to Him Who hath given thee strength!/ Glory to Him Who hath crowned thee!// Glory to Him Who worketh healings for all through thee!
Kontakion, Tone II "In prayers" —
Delighting in abstinence and restraining the desires of thy flesh,/ O divinely wise and sacred father Auxentius,/ thou wast shown forth, shining with faith,// and didst blossom like a plant in the midst of paradise.
