Monasticism

Αποτέλεσμα εικόνας για αγιος αντωνιος αριζονα

The innermost spiritual sense of Orthodox Monasticism is revealed in joyful mourning. This paradoxical phrase denotes a spiritual state in which a monk in his prayer grieves for the sins of the world and at the same time experiences the regenerating spiritual joy of Christ’s forgiveness and resurrection. A monk dies in order to live, he forgets himself in order to find his real self in God, he becomes ignorant of worldly knowledge in order to attain real spiritual wisdom which is given only to the humble ones.

Ήχος δ’. Ταχύ προκατάλαβε.
Τρισάριθμον σύνθημα, των αθλοφόρων Χριστού, υμνήσωμεν άσμασι, χαριστηρίοις πιστοί, Μηνάν τον αοίδιμον, Βίκτωρα τον γενναίον, και Βικέντιον θείον, πλάνην την των ειδώλων, καταργήσαντας πίστει. Αυτών ταις ικεσίαις, Χριστέ ο Θεός, σώσον τας ψυχάς ημών.
