The Prophet: The Holy Spirit, Who proceeds from the Father, through your tongue spoke of the coming of Christ, which would come to pass in later times for the restoration of creation. O Prophet, as we now behold the fulfillment of what was prophesied, we honor your memory!
The Martyr: Raised on the dogmas of the Apostles, O blessed one, and the teachings of the divine Fathers, you venerated the visible image of the incarnate God in sacred symbols and in honorable icons. Therefore you suffered for them, O glorious one. You were revealed to be a teacher of piety and the adornment of martyrs.
Before all other deeds, remember about this great deed: that your children, innocent and pure children, take into their pure hearts the Law of God, the commandments of Christ, at least from the small amount of instruction that they can receive from you.
You have not yet forgotten the Law of God, so teach, teach your children, and then your family will become your house church. And the light of Christ from this house church will spread invisibly for you beyond the boundaries of your family.
The Light of Christ, His Divine Truth, will invisibly flow into the hearts and minds of all those who have dealings with you. It could be that the influence of your house church will go beyond its boundaries.
Then the eternal blessing of our Lord and God Jesus Christ, His Beginningless Father, and the All-Holy Spirit will be upon you. Article
The more we forgive, the more courage we gather within our heart which in turn makes it easier to forgive the next time, and the time after that, and seventy-times seven that follow. When we begin living according to a life in Christ, our world changes, we perceive those around us differently. We begin to see them as Christ sees them. Most importantly, we recognize the grace of Christ operative in our lives. We can then echo the words of Saint Paul, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Phillippians 4:13) and that includes forgiving everyone, even those who have wronged us greviously.
