Great Lent Services

Great Lent 2015

 

One of the weapons Christians have in this spiritual war is prayer. It is therefore no coincidence that during Lent Christians increase and intensify their prayer. During Lent the Church increases the number of services.

The Services of the Great Compline, of the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts and of the Salutations to the Most Holy Theotokos (Akathistos Hymn) are unique to Lent, and through this Lenten worship we are able to participate in its “bright sadness”, in the joyful repentance by which we are liberated from the mad rush, obsessive consumption, and thoughtless routines of daily life.
