A Joyous Lent to All! Καλή Σαρακοστή! 2015


Καλή Σαρακοστή !

The lenten spring has come!
   the light of repentance;
Let us, brothers, cleanse ourselves from all evil,
   crying out to the Giver of Light:
Glory to Thee, O Lover of man…

Let us begin the time of fasting in light!
   Preparing ourselves for the spiritual efforts.
Let us purify our soul; let us purify our body.
As from food, let us abstain from all passion
   and enjoy the virtues of the spirit,
So that perfected in time by love
We may all be made worthy to see
   the Passion of Christ and the Holy Pascha
In spiritual joy!  Lenten Text
