Synaxarion for the Fifth Sunday of Lent

On this day, the fifth Sunday of the Fast, we commemorate our venerable mother Mary of Egypt.

The soul leaves the flesh emaciated to the very bones. O earth, cover these bleached bones, the remains of Mary.

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