O Lord Thou shalt open my lips and my mouth shall declare Thy praise.

Remember the Dead

Today is the Second All-Souls Saturday in the Byzantine Rite. Remember the dead and their needs. Pray and do penance for the dead. In the Byzantine tradition, Great Lent is not just a time for doing penance for yourself, but for the dead also. Vichnaya Pamyat. Everlasting Memory.
