Lenten Quotations for the Fourth Week of Great Lent (from The Lenten Triodion)

Dear Brethren and Friends of St Elizabeth’s,
 
Please follow the link below to read some of the stichera (verses) from the services of Matins and Vespers for the fourth week of Great Lent. They are taken from The Lenten Triodion, which is the special liturgical book used during this season of the year for our worship and edification. The verses chosen focus on how fasting, prayer, and practicing the Christian virtues are essential for our spiritual lives, which is being “refocused” during Great Lent.
 
With much love in Christ,
Fr Mark
