Divine Liturgy on the 12th Sunday of Matthew

This video was recorded live during Divine Liturgy this morning. Holy days occurring this week included the commemoration of St. Phanourios and Friday’s commemoration of the Beheading of St. John the Forerunner. Today also marks the Placing of the Honorable Sash of the Most Holy Theotokos.

From a vile captivity, thou didst deliver the Lord’s priests, and, O godly-minded one, didst break their bonds by divine might; thou didst bravely shame the tyrants’ audacious madness, giving joy unto the Angels, O thou Great Martyr. O Phanurius most glorious, we all revere thee as a true warrior of God

Kontakion in the Third Tone
St. Phanurius

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
