April 29, 2021 - Baramouda 21, 1737

Commemoration of the Lady the Theotokos

On this day, we celebrate the commemoration of the Lady Virgin Mary, the Mother of God the Word.

Her intercession be with us. Amen.

Departure of St.Hierotheos, of Athens

On this day also, St. Hierotheos (Berutawos) of Athens, departed. This father was one of the learned men in the city of Athens. He met the Apostle St. Paul, and many discussions took place between them which led to his belief on the Apostle's hand. He baptized him, taught him the Ordinances and Law of the church, and then ordained him a priest for this city. He frequently visited St. Dionysius the Areopagite, who was also one of the learned men in Athens.

This Saint was present at the time of the departure of the Lady Virgin Mary, and he stood in the midst of the apostles and comforted them with spiritual songs and hymns which he sang accompanied with musical instruments.

He converted many Jews and Gentiles to the knowledge of the Lord Christ. When the people wished to ordain him a bishop, he refused saying: 'I just wish to be able to perform the duties of a priest.' Having finished his good strife, he went to the Lord Whom he loved.

His prayers be with us and Glory be to our God forever. Amen.
