This second Sunday of Great Lent is the Sunday of St. Gregory of Palamas, Wonderworker of Thessalonica, champion of Orthodox theology, and one of the saints dearest to me. “For God is not only beyond knowledge, but also beyond unknowing.”
O light of Orthodoxy, teacher of the Church, its confirmation,
O ideal of monks and invincible champion of theologians,
O wonder working Gregory, glory of Thessalonica and preacher of grace,
always intercede before the Lord that our souls may be saved.
