Sunday of Orthodoxy (2012)

No one could describe the Word of the Father;

but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos, He accepted to be described,

and restored the fallen image to its former state by uniting it to divine beauty.

We confess and proclaim our salvation in words and images.

(Hymn for the Sunday of Orthodoxy)

“On the first Sunday of Easter Lent, when the Orthodox celebrate the Triumph of Orthodoxy and the victory over iconoclasm, the clergy and the people read aloud the Synodikon proudly announcing:

‘This is the Faith of the Apostles, this is the Faith of the Fathers, this is the Faith of the Orthodox, this is the Faith which has established the universe. This is our Orthodox Faith…’ and then all present, the clergy and the people, recite the Nicene Creed.”

(Fr. Mateja Matejic, Orthodoxy: Courage to Be Different, Strength the Remain the Same, pg. 9)
