The Twenty-Second Day of the Blessed Month of Misra
Departure of Micah, the Prophet
On this day, the great righteous prophet Micah,
departed. He prophesied about Samaria and Jerusalem during the time of
Jotham, Ahaz and Hezkiah, kings of Judeah. He prophesied about the incarnation
of the Lord, to Whom is the Glory, saying, "For behold, the Lord is coming
out of His high place. He will come down and tread on the high places of
the earth." (Micah 1:3) He prophesied about His birth in Bethlehem, saying,
"But you Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands
of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me. The one to be ruler in
Israel. Whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting."
(Micah 5:2) He prophesied about the futility of the Jewish temple and the going
forth of the Law of the Gospel from Zion, saying, " ... For out of Zion
the Law shall go forth, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem."
(Micah 4:2) He also prophesied about the perdition of Ahab, king of Israel.
(Micah 5:15,16) When this prophet finished his strife in peace, he departed at
a good old age. He preceded the Lord Christ by about eight hundred years.
May his prayers be with us. Amen.

On this day also, in the
year 1103 A.M. (1387 A.D.), St. Hadid, was martyred. He was from the Giza
