This section will be a work in progress. As the years go on, I will add to the daily menu of readings and quotations for each weekday in Great Lent. In the section below, click  on the blue script to hear the reading. For a much fuller commentary on each day in Lent,  I recommend that you look at Father Tryphon's "Morning Offering" throughout the weeks ahead. Father Tryphon is the Abbot of the  Monastery of the All Merciful Saviour on Vashon Island in the United States (ROCOR, Western American Diocese). A dear benefactor of our church, Father Spiridon, was a monk of this monastery. You can find this at: http://blogs.ancientfaith.com/morningoffering/

Father Tryphon has been seriously ill. Please pray for him.
