MAR 15: GREAT CANON OF ST. ANDREW OF CRETE

sgp20 MAR 15: MATINS WITH CANON OF ST. ANDREW OF CRETE- 5:30 AM
The canon is called great because of its volume (266 verses) and its inner content as it affects the soul “penitentiary” or “remorsefully.” In it St. Andrew collected all the events of the Old and the New Testaments, from the fall of Adam to the death of Christ the Savior on the cross, and expressed them in a manner of deep and heartfelt grief.

For those who can’t attend the Matins – the verses and the order of the Matins are attached here: Matins_of_the_Great_Canon
