For you are our Father, and we know no other but you

AFTER this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Mt 6:9.


OH that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence, as when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence!

Isaiah 64:1-2.


Mary, Ever-Virgin Mother of God

Mary, Ever-Virgin Mother of God

DELIVERING us from the ancient condemnation, the Son of God was well-pleased, Pure Virgin, to become your Son also. We therefore, through him adopted as sons, bless the heavenly Father as we sing your praise.

WE worship you, Father in Essence without beginning; we hymn your Son alike without beginning, and devoutly praise the all-holy Spirit, as Three, one God by nature.

BECAUSE our iniquities have risen up against us, arise, Lord, help us; for you are our Father, and we know no other but you.

LORD, you are our Father, while we are your clay and you are our Fashioner; we are all the works of your hands; do not be very angry with us, Lord, and do not remember our sins in season. And now look upon us, Lord, for we are all your people.

Is 64:1-5, Vespers on the Feast of St Demetrios. Source.


I WILL therefore recall the parable of the Profligate.
For he was formerly stripped bare of every grace,
Having squandered all his substance,
And he runs to his father with many lamentations crying out, ‘Father, I have sinned’.
So the one who sees all things saw, hurried,
And met him and kissed him,
Flung his arms round the neck of the one who had returned,
For he is the God of the repentant.
In his compassion he had mercy on his son who had fallen, he the
Master and Lord of the ages.

St Romanos the Melodist, Kontakion 49. Source.
