Archbishop Elpidophoros, Homily at the Divine Liturgy of the Publican and the Pharisee

It is in a hymn of this morning’s Orthros service that for the first time this year we are introduced to the words “open to me the gates of repentance, O Giver of Life…” reminding us that we are now in the period of Triodion – the season of awareness that leads to the Great Fast of the Holy Forty Days and the Pascha of our Lord.

Καὶ βέβαια ἡ ἀπάντηση ποὺ δίδεται ἑορτάζοντας καὶ τοὺς τρεῖς μαζί εἶναι ὅτι καὶ οἱ τρεῖς εἶναι ἄριστοι χωρὶς καμμία διάκριση. Read More
