NOT FOR MATERIAL PROFIT! 12. ST ATHANASIOS & ST CYRIL OF ALEXANDRIA 18 JANUARY

St Athanasios & St Cyril of Alexandria
St Athanasios and St Cyril were Archbishops/Patriarchs of Alexandria. These wise Teachers of Truth and Defenders of Christ’s Church share a joint Feast in recognition of their dogmatic writings that affirm the Truth of the Orthodox Faith, correctly interpret Holy Scripture, and censure the delusions of the heretics. St Athanasios took part in the First Ecumenical Council when he was still a Deacon. He surpassed everyone there in his zeal to uphold the Teaching that Christ is Consubstantial (Homoousios) with the Father, and not merely a creature, as the Arians proclaimed. This Radiant Beacon of Orthodoxy spent most of his life in exile from his See, because of the plotting of his enemies. He returned to his Flock as he was approaching the end of his life. Like an Evening Star, he Illumined the Orthodox Faithful with his words for a little while, then reposed in 373. He is also commemorated on 2 May (Translation of his Holy Relics). St Cyril was the nephew of Patriarch Theophilos of Alexandria, who educated him from his youth. He succeeded to his uncle’s position in 412, but was deposed through the intrigues of the Nestorian heretics. He later resumed his See, however. St Cyril presided at the Third Ecumenical Council in 431, which censured the Nestorian blasphemy against the Most Holy Theotokos. His wise words demonstrated the error of their false doctrine. St Cyril departed to the Lord in the year 444, and is also Commemorated on 9 June (the day of his repose). May their memories be Eternal and may they Intercede to our Lord Jesus Christ for our Eternal Salvation.

Sacred Duo of Teachers and zealots of the Lord, let us with Hymns extol now, O Believers, and praise them: Cyril that Divine Man, a Flame of Fire, and the firm Athanasios.
