Christmas is Coming (Elder Aimilianos of Simonpetra)


By Elder Aimilianos of Simonopetra

Christmas is coming. Do you know that the pre-festal troparia begin on the twentieth of December?

The Church has also wisely set the last day in which the night grows longer. On the twenty-first of the month the day begins to grow longer. The nights and noetic darknesses leave while light and days increase.

Let us ask God to take away from us the darkness of our hearts now that the days are growing and they become completely illumined, now that the time of the year is changing.

The Church announces this to us with the rising of the true light, the Sun of our souls.
