The Bees Giving the Honey of Divine Love
Feast of the Three Holy Hierarchs: Sts. Basil the Great, John Chrysostom, and Gregory the Theologian
From the Sessionals at Matins during All-Night Vigil last night:
Like bees hovering over the meadow of the Scriptures,* you embraced the wonderful pollen of their flowers.* Together you have produced for all the faithful* the honey of your teachings for their complete delight.* Therefore as we each enjoy this, we cry out with gladness:* blessed ones, even after death,* be advocates for us who praise you!
