You are angry with your neighbours - you despise them, or you do not like to speak peaceably and lovingly to them because there is something harsh, abrupt, careless or unpleasant in their character, in their speech or in their manners — or because they are more conscious of their dignity than perhaps is necessary; or because they may be somewhat proud and disrespectful.

But you yourself who are your neighbours’ Physician and Teacher, are even more guilty than them!

“Physician, heal thyself!” we are commanded.

Teacher, teach yourself!

Your own malice is the bitterest of all evils.

Is it then possible to correct malice by means of evil?

Having a beam in your own eye, can you pull out the mote from the eye of another?

Evil and faults

are corrected by Good, by Love, Kindness, Meekness,

Humility, and Patience

Pursuing Thee, he found Thee and slew Thee, O Undefiled Bride of Christ. Glory to Him Who Strengthened Thee! Glory to Him Who Crowned Thee! Glory to Him Who works Healings for all through Thee!

Isidore the Martyr Athlete, and his
fellow Martyr, Myropi, and Matrona,
the Most Holy Monastic, with
Markella the Virgin Martyr whose
Sacred Memory we observe today.
On Fire with Divine Longing, the
celebrated Maiden resisted the rebel,
as if she were bodiless, and most
wisely she undid his machinations,
as if they were spider webs. For
manfully she accepted being
slaughtered by her licentious father,
not sparing even her Life, for Christ
her Bridegroom. Wherefore, she was
counted worthy to become a
Patroness of her homeland, together
with the other Saints who flourished
there, with whom she intercedes
with the Lord, on behalf of our soul.
Now and ever, and to the Ages of ages.

Thou Endured maltreatment from
Thy depraved father, O Wonderful
Virgin. And for the sake of the
precise keeping of the Divine Law,
Thou suffered the amputation of
Thy breasts and precious head.
Thus Thou censured the monstrous
licentiousness that he tried to
perpetrate. Hence, as a Virgin, Thou
exult together with the Wise Virgins,
and as meticulous Keeper of the
Law, Thou art Glorified together with
the Maccabees and the Holy
Forerunner. With them, Intercede on
behalf of our soul.
