SUNDAY OF ST MARY OF EGYPT

THE EPISTLE

OF

ST PAUL

TO THE

HEBREWS 9: 11 -14

THE HEAVENLY HOLY SANCTUARY & THE DIVINE LITURGY

On the Fifth Sunday of Great Lent, the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church
Commemorates our Righteous Holy Mother, St Mary of Egypt, due to her
amazing example of absolute Repentance, which radically changed
her from being a debauched sinner into one of our most venerable
Saints.
Furthermore, we, ourselves, are reminded of the Extraordinary Power of
True Repentance and our Loving Gods Great Mercy, whereby even the
worst of us sinners may be Spiritually Transformed and Sanctified.

During Great Lent we Commemorate St Mary of Egypt both on 1 April and


on the Fifth Sunday of Lent.
With the Canon of St Andrew, which is read in many churches during the
First and Fifth Weeks of Great Lent, we uphold her as an Icon of
Repentance - an example for every faithful Orthodox Christian to
emulate.
During her early years, as she had confessed to St Zosimos, she had lived a
life of bondage to sexual passions.
I confess to Thee, O Saviour, the sins I have committed - the wounds of
my soul and body, which murderous thoughts, like thieves, have
inflicted inwardly upon me. (THE CANON OF ST. ANDREW, CANTICLE 1, VS. 12.)
While we do not know about the very early years of her life, we do know
that she lost her virginity at the age of twelve when she ran away from
home.
For the next seventeen years she was a slave to her insatiable appetite for
sexual perversions, including sexual encounters with young men, even
against their will.
This sounds very much like a victim of paedophilia who recoils but
continues in her victimization by taking on the role of a predator herself
by victimizing others in the process.
Many adults who fall into the bondage of paedophilia are victims of sexual
abuse as children. In a futile attempt to reconcile the horror of their own
victimization, they try to regain control of their lives through exploitation
by continuing to inflict wounds on their own souls and bodies.
Like David, I have fallen into lust and I am covered in filth; but wash me
clean, O Saviour, by my tears. (THE CANON OF ST. ANDREW, CANTICLE 2, VS. 54.)
O Lady, Thou hast brought forth our Joy: Grant me the Spirit of Mourning
that in the Coming Day of Judgement I may be Comforted by God.
(THE CANON OF ST. ANDREW, CANTICLE 9, VS. 327.)
...For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. (ROMANS 3:23)
For seventeen years, St Mary of Egypt lived a lifestyle that isolated her from
the community and God.
Covered with filth amassed over the years, her heart yet longed for Union
with God.
People in prison feel ostracized too - isolated from God and society - as they
sit in shame in prison cells longing for the same Tears of Repentance
that lead to Joy and Reconciliation.
Christ became Man, calling to Repentance thieves and harlots. Repent,
my soul! The Door of the Kingdom is already open, and Pharisees and
Publicans and adulterers pass through it before Thee, changing their
lives. (THE CANON OF ST. ANDREW, CANTICLE 9, VS. 342)
The Healing of the Venerable St Mary of Egypt was not instantaneous but
required a rigorous and lengthy Spiritual Journey.
2 . TONE (5) PLAGAL 146 AP9 TRIO5 LENTST MARY

OF

EGYPT-17 APRIL 2016

Brethren: Christ came as High Priest of the Good Things to come with the
greater and more Perfect Tabernacle Not Made With Hands that is, not
of this Creation.
Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own Blood He entered
the Most Holy Place once, for all having obtained Eternal Redemption.
For, if the blood of bulls and goats, and the ashes of heifers, sprinkled upon
the unclean Sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, how much more
shall the Blood of Christ - Who through the Eternal Spirit offered Himself
without spot to God - Cleanse our conscience from dead works, to Serve
the Living God?!
HOLY GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST MARK 10 : 32 45
OUR LORDS THIRD PROPHECY CONCERNING HIS PASSION

At that time, they were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and our Lord
Jesus had gone before them; and they were amazed.
And as they followed, they were afraid, for He had taken the Twelve aside
again and had begun to tell them the things that would happen to Him.
Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be
betrayed to the Chief Priests, and to the Scribes. And they will
condemn Him to death and deliver Him to the Gentiles; and they will
mock Him and spit on Him, and kill Him. And the third day He will
Rise again.
And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, went to Him and asked:
Teacher, we want Thee to do for us whatever we ask.
He said to them: What do you want Me to do for you?
They said to Him: Grant us that we may sit - one on Thy right hand side
and the other on Thy left - in Thy Glory.
Jesus said to them: You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink
from the Cup from which I drink, and be Baptised with the Baptism
with which I Am Baptised?
They answered: We are able.
Jesus said to them: You will indeed drink the Cup from which I drink, and
with the Baptism with which I Am Baptised you will be Baptised. But to
sit on My right hand side and on My left is not Mine to grant, since it is
for those for whom it is prepared.
And when the ten heard about it, they were greatly displeased with James
and John.
Jesus called them to Himself and said to them: You know that those who
are considered Rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their
great ones exercise authority over them.
Yet is shall not be so among you; for whoever desires to become great
among you shall be your servant.
And whoever of you desire to be first shall be slave of all.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to Serve and to
give His Life as a Ransom for many.

Being led by the Holy Spirit, she retreated to the wilderness where she lived
the Life of a Hermit for seventeen years, seeking Freedom from bondage
of the passions.
She spent a further thirty years in the wilderness having obtained the True
Gifts of Repentance, Healing and Freedom from the enslavement of sin.
During Great Lent, each of us seeks Repentance, turning from our own vices
and passions and setting our minds and hearts on God.
Through the Intercessions of the most Holy Theotokos, God grants us the Gift
of Compunction to turn from our wounds and sins to find Healing and
Comfort in Him.
Let us remember St Mary of Egypt and her wonderful Redemption.
During the remainder of this Lenten Journey, may we pray to be freed from
our imprisonment to the passions that enslave us.
Let us also pray for Strength for all of our Brothers and Sisters who are
imprisoned in Penitentiaries both earthly and Spiritual Imprisonment for their Struggles and their Journeys to Repentance as well as our
own.
Having been a sinful woman, Thou became through Repentance a Bride
of Christ. Having attained Angelic Life, Thou defeated demons with
the Weapon of the Cross! Therefore, O Most Glorious Mary, Thou art a
Bride of the Kingdom! (KONTAKION: TONE 3)
