From the Menaion - 14 February


On 14 February, we commemorate our venerable father Auxentios, who lived on Mount Skopa.

The mount was for Auxentios what Carmel had been for the prophet Elijah. Imitating his career in all but the final ascent, he left this life for Heaven on the fourteenth.

On this same day, we commemorate our venerable father Maron.

O Maron, your flesh which was withered by nature was transplanted into Eden as it became a blossoming flower.

By their holy praeyrs, O our God, take pity on us and save us. Amen.
