hast founded for them.
Thou hast set a bound, which they shall
not pass over; neither shall they
return to cover the Earth.
Thou send forth springs in the vales:
between the midst of the hills the
waters shall pass.
All the beasts of the field shall drink:
the wild asses shall expect in their
thirst
Over them the birds of the air shall
dwell: from the midst of the rocks
they shall give forth their voices.
Thou waters the hills from Thine Upper
Rooms: the Earth shall be filled with
the Fruit of Thy Works - bringing
forth grass for cattle, and herbs for
the service of mankind that Thou
may bring bread out of the Earth.
And that wine may cheer the heart
of mankind.
That he may make his face cheerful
with oil. And that bread may
strengthen his heart.
The trees of the field shall be filled, and
in the Cedars of Lebanon, which He
has planted, the sparrows shall
make their nests. The highest of
them is the nest of the heron.
The high hills are a refuge for the deer,
the rock for the hares.
He has made the moon for seasons:
the sun knows its setting.
Thou hast appointed darkness, and it is
night. In it shall all the beasts of the
woods go about:
The young lions roaring after their
prey, and seeking their meat from
God.
The sun rises, and they are gathered
together: and they shall lie down in
their dens.
Man shall go forth to his work, and to
his labour until the evening.
How great art Thy Works, O Lord! Thou
hast made all things in Wisdom: The
Earth is filled with Thy Riches.

IT REMINDS US OF THE ANCIENT PROCESSIONS OF THE CROSS IN THE STREETS, MORE ESPECIALLY BY NIGHT; AND OF THE FERVENT

CHRIST, THE GLADSOME RADIANCE, CAME DOWN TO US HERE BELOW; THAT THEY WHO STAND IN THE PORCH MAY EXPECT
MERCY FROM OUR LORD AND THE REMISSION OF THEIR REPENTED SINS.
ON THE OTHER HAND, THE GOING-FORTH OF THE FAITHFUL TO THE PORCH, THE PLACE OF CATECHUMENS AND PENITENTS,
DENOTES THE PROFOUND HUMILITY OF THE FAITHFUL, WHO ARE READY TO PUT THEMSELVES IN THE PLACE OF THE

KAT HI S MA OF PS AL MS - THE CHRISTIANS WHO CAME AFTER THE HOLY APOSTLES WERE VERY FOND OF THE PSALMS. THEY
DIVIDED THEM INTO 20 PARTS, EACH PART USUALLY CONSISTING OF 6 OR 7 PSALMS, WHICH THEY CALLED STICHOLOGIA,
MEANING A CERTAIN NUMBER OR COLLECTION OF PSALMS. THEN THEY DISTRIBUTED THESE STICHOLOGIAS INTO 7 DIVISIONS,
AFTER THE 7 MATINS OF THE WEEK. EACH STICHOLOGIA WAS DIVIDED INTO 3 STAGES OF A FEW PSALMS EACH, FOLLOWED BY
GLORY TO THE FATHER... AFTER WHICH WE BESEECH GODS MERCY AND RESUME THE RECITATION OF THE PSALMS.
AT THE END OF THE 3
RD
STAGE, WE SING A HYMN THAT IS CALLED KATHISMA OR HYMNS KATHISMATA WHICH MEANS SITTING
BECAUSE IT IS PERMISSIBLE FOR THE CONGREGATION TO SIT WHILE IT IS SUNG. THIS DIVISION OF THE PSALMS IS ANCIENT FROM
BEFORE THE COUNCIL OF LAODICEA IN 364. THE 17
TH
CANON OF THAT COUNCIL INSTRUCTS: THE PSALMS SHOULD NOT BE READ
CONTINUOUSLY IN THE CHURCHES BUT BETWEEN ONE PSALM AND ANOTHER THERE SHOULD BE INSERTED SOME READING.

And the Angel of the Lord looked upon
him and said to him: Go in this

Israel from the hand of Madiam.
Behold! I have sent Thee.
And Gideon said to him: In me, Lord?
How shall I save Israel? Behold! my

And the Angel of the Lord said to him:
The Lord will be with Thee, and
Thou will smite Madiam as one man.
And Gideon said to him: If I have
found Grace in Thy Sight, and Thou
do for me today everything of which
Thou hast spoken with me, do not,
pray, leave here until I come back to
Thee, and I shall bring my sacrifice
and offer sacrifice before Thee.
And He said: I Am. I shall sit here until
Thou return.
And Gideon went and prepared a goat
kid and a measure of unleavened
flour, and he put the meat in a
basket and the broth he put in a pot
and brought them to him under the
Oak, and approached.
And the Angel of the Lord said to him:
Take the meat and the unleavened
loaves and put them upon that rock
and pour out the broth next to it.

And he did so.
And the Angel of the Lord stretched
out the tip of the rod in his hand
and touched the meat and the
unleavened loaves; and fire was
kindled from the rock and it
devoured the meat and the
unleavened loaves; and the Angel of
the Lord disappeared from his sight.
And Gideon saw that it was the Angel
of the Lord, and Gideon said: Alas,
Lord, Lord! For I have seen the Angel
of the Lord face to face!
And the Lord said to him: Peace to
you! Do not be afraid. You shall not

READER In the third year of Cyrus, King of
the Persians, a Word was revealed to
Daniel, whose name was called
Baltasar; and the Word was True
and Mighty Powerful, and
Understanding was given him in a
Vision.
In those days, I, Daniel, had been
mourning for three weeks of days.
And desiring bread, I did not eat, and
meat and wine did not enter my
mouth, I did not anoint myself with
oil until the completion of the three
weeks of days.
And on the 24
th
of the first month in
the third year, I was near the great
river - that is the Tigris.

And I raised my eyes and looked, and
behold! A man, clothed in linen, his
loins girt with gold of Ophaz, and
his body was as Tharsis, and his face
like the sight of lightning, and his
eyes like lamps of fire, and his arms
and legs like the sight of gleaming
bronze, and the sound of his words
was as the sound of a multitude.
And I, Daniel, alone saw the Vision, and
the men who were with me saw
nothing; but great amazement fell
upon them, and they fled in fear.
And I was left alone, and I saw this
Great Vision, and no strength was
left in me, and my glory was turned
to corruption, and I retained no
strength.

And I heard the sound of his words;
and when I heard the sound of his
words I was stunned - with my face

And behold: A hand touched me and
raised me onto my knees and the
knuckles of my hands.
And he said to me: Daniel, man greatly
beloved, understand the words that I
speak to Thee and stand upright, for
I am now sent to Thee.
And when he had spoken to me this
word I stood trembling.
And he said to me: Daniel, do not be
afraid, because from the first day
that Thou gave Thy heart to
understand and to be afflicted before
the Lord Thy God, Thy words were
heard, and I have come through Thy
words.
And the Ruler of the Kingdom of the
Persians resisted me for 21 days.
And behold: Michael, one of the Chief
Rulers, came to help me, and I left
him there with the Ruler of the
Kingdom of the Persians.
And I have come to make Thee
understand all that will happen to
Thy people in the Last Days; because
the Vision is yet for days ahead.
And when he spoke to me in these
words, I put my face to the ground
and was stunned.
And behold: as the Likeness of a Son of
Man touched my lips; and I opened
my mouth, and spoke and said to
the One Who stood in front of me:
Lord, at the sight of Thee, my
inward parts were turned within me,
and I had no strength. And how will
Thy servant, Lord, be able to speak
with my Lord? And from now on
strength will not remain in me, and
breath has not been left in me.
And once again there touched me as it
were the appearance of a Man, and
He Strengthened me and said to me:
Do not be afraid, man of desires,
Peace be with Thee. Be a man and be
strong.
And when he had spoken with me I
received Strength and said: Let my
Lord speak for Thou hast
Strengthened me.
