Pre-Lenten Quotations for Cheese Week (from The Lenten Triodion)

In the link below are some of the stichera (verses) from the services of Matins and Vespers for Cheese Week, the week before the start 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 life, which is being “refocused” during Great Lent.
