Extreme HumilityApril 4-11, 2020
Great and Holy Week

Behold, the Bridegroom comes at midnight, And blessed is that servant whom He shall find watching, And again, unworthy is the servant whom He shall find heedless. Beware, therefore, O my soul, do not be weighed down with sleep, Lest you be given up to death, and lest you be shut out of the Kingdom. But rouse yourself crying: Holy, Holy, Holy, art Thou, O our God, Through the Mother of God have mercy on us. Troparion of Bridegroom Matins

The icon is the "Extreme Humility" of the Savior
