Sixth Hour on Monday
Mary stands among the assemblies carrying the living Son of God, and gives milk to the Providence, who with a gesture
feeds all creatures, halleluia, may her prayer be with us.
Glory be to the Father...
Behold, heaven and earth rejoice at your memory, blessed and holy martyrs, and, behold, angels and men are glad and
sing praise to the power which rests in your bones, halleluia, may your prayers be with us.
The above selected prayers are taken from the Book of Common of the Syrian Church, otherwise known as
the Shimo Namaskaram as translated by Bede Griffiths from Syriac to English. A full copy of the rich
prayers of our tradition can be purchased directly from the publishers at Gorgias Press.
