Holy and Great Monday Resource Page

On Holy and Great Monday, we commemorate the blessed Joseph the All-Comely and the fig tree cursed and withered by the Lord.

Verses for Joseph the All-Comely

The chaste Joseph proved to be a just ruler
And a provider of corn; O abundance of good things.

Verses for the Withered Fig Tree

Christ likeneth the synagogue of the Hebrews
To a fig tree devoid of spiritual fruits and
Withereth it with a curse; let us avoid its fate.
