The Nicene Creed

 

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Only-begotten, Begotten of the Father before all ages. Light of Light, True God of True God, Begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made: Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried; and on the third day He rose, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again, with glory to judge the living and the dead, whose Kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, and Giver of Life, Who proceedeth from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the Prophets; And I believe in One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the remission of sins. I look for the Resurrection of the dead, and the life of the age to come. Amen.

First Sunday of Great Lent: Sunday of Orthodoxy (February 25) 

Thy pure image do we venerate, O good One, asking forgiveness of our sins, O Christ our God; for by Thine own will Thou didst ascend the Cross in Thy body, to save Thy creatures from the bondage of the enemy. Thou hast verily filled all with joy, since Thou didst come, O our Savior, to save the world. (Apolytikion in Tone 2)

 

 

Wisdom

"It is through the virtue of humility that we attain spiritual gifts. Humility is the acknowledgement that God has saved us, forgiven us and desires that we should do the same. God does not force us to do so, we must be willing. If we are not willing to be humble, the world will humiliate us. The humble person cannot be humiliated, for humiliation is nothing but a blow to our pride. The one who has no pride escapes such suffering." -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
