My favorite hymn was sung tonight at Forgiveness Vespers:
"Let us begin the fast with joy! / Let us prepare ourselves for spiritual efforts! / Let us cleanse our soul and cleanse our flesh! / Let us abstain from every passion as we abstain from food! / Let us rejoice in virtues of the Spirit and fulfill them in love! / That we all may see the Passion of Christ our God, / and rejoice in spirit at the holy Pascha!
Have a joyous and fruitful Lenten season, my brothers and sisters in Christ.
