AKATHIST TO MARTYR VARUS, HOLY INTERCESSOR FOR FAMILY MEMBERS WHO REPOSED OUTSIDE THE ORTHODOX FAITH

Author: #: 12802
One often hears converts to Orthodoxy express their sorrow that there are no Orthodox prayers one may offer on behalf of their beloved relatives who have departed this life outside the Church.  Over the past several years a wondrous fervor of veneration for the holy Martyr Varus has blossomed forth, especially in Russia, as a heavenly intercessor for those who died outside the Faith.  The memorable Patriarch Alexis II noted: "Chapels are being built in honor of the martyr Varus, and icons are being painted.  From his life it follows that he possessed a special desire to pray to God for those who died unbaptized."

AKATHIST TO THE MOTHER OF GOD - THE MILKGIVER

Author: #: 12883
Rejoice, O Virgin Mother of God, thou giver of milk!Gladden us with the grace of thy Son!
This Akathist—pure and beautiful in its simplicity—was composed in honor of the unique Wonderworking Icon, “theMilkgiver,” treasured in the Serbian Hilandar Monastery on the Holy Mountain. The Theotokos is depicted breastfeeding Christ, a poignant model for mothers nourishing their children. This maternal image is woven throughout the text, as the Mother of God is our “sheltering wing,” “protection for our little children,” “support of families of the faithful,” and “nurturer of the young and weak.” She is the nurturer of all, for her milk “noetically poureth forth immaterial gifts, nurturing the hearts and souls of the faithful.” This English version is translated from Serbian and printed with the blessing of Hilandar Monastery. A fitting gift, especially during the season of Christ’s Nativity.

CANON TO ST. MARY OF EGYPT: HUMBLE VICTOR OVER CARNAL PASSIONS

Author: #: 12884
Even before going to press, many of the faithful showed tremendous interest in this new addition to the Akathist Series, which includes two canons to St. Mary of Egypt. Our nation is being devastated by a great spiritual tsunami of lustful passions. As Fr. Demetrios Carellas writes in the Introduction: “May this Canon to St. Mary, and the Spirit-filled prayers at the end, help us in our efforts to keep our souls from sinking under this soul-destroying tsunami. May we also offer it as an intercession for others who are under the control of this demonic weapon of mass destruction, and who—at present—do not have the desire, or strength, to escape its terrible impact on their souls.”
