Saturday Synaxis

(Icon: The Virgin of Vladimir, 12th century)

Teach us, good Lord, to serve you as you deserve:
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward
Save that of knowing that we do your will.
                     
- Ignatius of Loyola, 16th century, founder of the Jesuit order
