Glory to Jesus Christ! + Glory Forever!

Last JudgmentFebruary 18-24, 2019 | Meat Fare Week

When You, O God, shall come to earth in glory, * all things shall tremble and the river of fire shall flow before Your judgment seat; * the books will be opened and the hidden things revealed. * Then deliver me from the unquenchable fire, * and make me worthy to stand at Your right hand, O righteous Judge. (Kontakion - Tone 1) [The Icon is a detail of the Last Judgment]
