The Twenty-First Day of the Blessed Month of Abib
Commemoration of the Lady, the Virgin
On this day, is the commemoration of
the Virgin Lady, St. Mary, the mother of the Savior of the world, the great
shelter, and the inexhaustible treasure.
May her intercession be for us all. Amen.
Departure of St.Sisinnios (Sosenius),
On this day also, St. Sisinnios (Sosenius),
the Eunich, departed. He was one of the men in the palace of Emperor Theodosius.
He was full of grace and wisdom, and his compassion was great. When the
third Ecumenical Council convened in Ephesus to judge Nestorius, this saint
ministered to St. Cyril (Kyrillos) the Great, and the rest of the holy
members of the council. He fell ill and St. Cyril prayed to God for his
sake, and St. Sisinnios was healed from his sickness. He gave all his money
to the poor and the needy, then departed in peace. St. Cyril prayed over
him, and arranged an annual commemoration for him on this day.
May his prayers be with us and Glory be to God forever. Amen.
