The Great Prokimen: Turn not away Thy face from Thy child for I am afflicted; hear me speedily. Draw near to my soul and deliver me. Stichos: Thy salvation, O God, hath set me up. The poor see and rejoice
Nun Susanna
After the service the spiritual father of the monastery says a sermon: “Lent cures body and soul. You should fast so that you have enough strengh for  services and kneeling. Those who had operation or is seriously ill can eat fish. If you damage your health during the Lent – such fasting is not welcome by God. You should know when enough is enough. Soul is most iportant, not what you eat. Now anger, no swearing, no hatred…

Everybody asks for forgiveness….
