Chronia Polla!

O God, our times are in your hand:
Look with favor, we pray,
on you servant John as he begins another year.
Grant that he may grow in wisdom and grace,
and strengthen his trust in your goodness
all the days of his life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
AMEN.

A blessed and happy birthday to you, sir!

Today is a feast of the Life-Giving Cross, with the minor Blessing of Water, that of the All-Merciful Saviour and the Theotokos, and of the Holy Maccabbees, their mother Solomonia and their elder, Eleazar (New Calendar).

By the time you finish chanting all the prescribed services, this day will be over before you know it! wink

Mnohaya Lita!

Alex

Also the Blessing of the New Honey, which I did a couple of times on the first Sunday in August since the congregation included some beekeepers.

Picture at link shows a slice of honeycomb on the tray:
