Aug. 29th Feast of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist

A blessed Feast of St. John the Baptist to all!

Excerpt from Great Vespers:

O John the Baptizer and preacher of repentance,* you sanctified the earth when you were beheaded.* You made plain to believers the law of God,* abolishing disobedience to the law.* Therefore, since you stand by the throne of Christ the heavenly King,* beseech Him to have mercy on our souls.
