"And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, 'My son, your sins are forgiven.'"
Second Sunday of Great Lent: Sunday of St. Gregory Palamas
On the Second Sunday of Lent the Orthodox Church commemorates our Holy Father Gregory Palamas, Archbishop of Thessalonica, the Wonderworker. The feast day of Saint Gregory Palamas is November 14, however, he is commemorated on this Sunday as the condemnation of his enemies and the vindication of his teachings by the Church in the 14th century was acclaimed as a second triumph of Orthodoxy.
Let Your Light Shine
O Gregory the Miracle Worker, light of Orthodoxy, support and teacher of the Church, comeliness of Monastics, invincible defender of theologians, the pride of Thessalonica, and preacher of grace, intercede forever that our souls may be saved.
(Apolytikion for the Sunday of Saint Gregory Palamas)
