From the Menaion - 11 March


On 11 March, we commemorate our venerable father Sophronios, Archbishop of Jerusalem.

Having kept the Law to its smallest detail, Sophronios rises up to Heaven in glory. While his spirit rested safely, the body of Sophronios succumbed to the weight of years, and he goes down to the grave on the eleventh.

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