From the Menaion - 12 February


On 12 February, we commemorate our father among the saints Meletios, Archbishop of Antioch the Great.

To imitate Christ in His last words, Meletios lifted up his arms and said this prayer, "Into Your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit!" On the twelfth, he was buried in the earth like a grain of wheat.

By his holy prayers, O our God, take pity on us and save us. Amen.
