Sunday before the Baptism of Our Lord and God and Saviour Jesus Christ
Eve of the Theophany (Kreshchenskyi Sochelnik).
For Thou hast possessed my reins; O Lord, Thou hast holpen me from my mother’s womb. I will confess Thee, for awesomely art Thou wondrous; marvelous are Thy works, and my soul knoweth it right well.
My Bone is not hid from Thee, which Thou madest in secret; nor my substance in the nethermost parts in of the earth.
My being while it was still unformed Thine eyes did see, and in Thy book shall all men be written; day by day they are formed, when as yet there be none of them. Psalm 138: 10- 15

“As Orthodox Christians, we strongly affirm the value and sanctity of all human life, from the moment of conception to the final breath one takes.” Excerpt of ArchPastoral Message Metropolitan Jonah 2010
“Thus, however we have sinned, we can be forgiven. Whether we have aborted a child, or consented to it, we can be forgiven. If we bear a child as a single mother, we can be accepted in the community of the Church with love. If we have judged and condemned others, and burn with resentment, we can be freed through repentance. No matter what we have done, no matter how broken we are or how completely we have messed up our lives, we can be healed, forgiven, accepted and loved. And then maybe we can forgive ourselves, and attain to that true freedom.” Excerpt of ArchPastoral Message Metropolitan Jonah 2011
