Sixth Hour on Sunday
The mountain of Sinai shook at your presence, Lord God; and the Virgin Mary carried you, who carry the heights and
the depths, she conceived you without marriage and brought you forth in a manner beyond description; magnify, Lord, the
memory of your mother.
Glory be to the Father...
Those who are sealed with the seal of Christ, who ate his holy body and drank his propitiatory blood, shall be raised up
by him from the earth and shake off the dust and shall be clothed in a garment of glory
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.
