Glory to Jesus Christ! + Glory Forever!

The Prodigal SonFebruary 17, 2019
Sunday of the Prodigal Son


When I foolishly ran away from Your fatherly glory, * I squandered in evil deeds the riches you had given to me. * Therefore, I bring to you the voice of the Prodigal, saying: * “I have sinned before You, O compassionate Father! * Receive me repentant and make me as one of Your hired servants.” (Kontakion - Tone 3)

The Icon is the Prodigal Son
