‘Wretch that I am..’

18 March 2020

‘Wretch that I am, I have spent the whole of my life, Lord, with harlots, as did the Prodigal. In contrition I cry: Heavenly Father, I have sinned. Take pity on me, save me. Do not reject me, keeping me far from You, now that I am bereft of Godly deeds’. (Vespers, stichero)
