Feast Day of this blog

February 2, 2010

Soften our evil hearts, O Mother of God, extinguish the afflictions of those who hate us, and loosen all the rigidity our souls. Gazing upon thy holy image, we are moved by thy suffering and thy mercy toward us. We kiss thy wounds, and are horrified that our arrows torment you. O merciful mother, do not let us perish in our own hardheartedness, nor from that of our neighbors, as thou art truly the Softener of evil hearts. – Troparion to the Icon of the Mother of God “Softener of Evil Hearts” (fifth tone)

Today is the feast day of the Mother of God “Softener of Evil Hearts” to Whom this blog is dedicated. May God bless all who read!
