FOLLOWED

IMMEDIATELY

On the Fifth Sunday of Great Lent, the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church
Commemorates our Righteous Holy Mother, St Mary of Egypt, due to her
amazing example of absolute Repentance, which radically changed her from
being a debauched sinner into one of our most venerable Saints.
Furthermore, we, ourselves, are reminded of the Extraordinary Power of True
Repentance and our Loving Gods Great Mercy, whereby even the worst of us
sinners may be Spiritually Transformed and Sanctified.

During Great Lent we Commemorate St Mary of Egypt both on 1 April and on the
Fifth Sunday of Lent.
With the Canon of St Andrew, which is read in many churches during the First and
Fifth Weeks of Great Lent, we uphold her as an Icon of Repentance - an
example for every faithful Orthodox Christian to emulate.
During her early years, as she had confessed to St Zosimos, she had lived a life of
bondage to sexual passions.
I confess to Thee, O Saviour, the sins I have committed - the wounds of my soul
and body, which murderous thoughts, like thieves, have inflicted inwardly
upon me. (THE CANON OF ST. ANDREW, CANTICLE 1, VS. 12.)
While we do not know about the very early years of her life, we do know that she
lost her virginity at the age of twelve when she ran away from home.
For the next seventeen years she was a slave to her insatiable appetite for sexual
perversions, including sexual encounters with young men, even against their
will.
This sounds very much like a victim of paedophilia who recoils but continues in
her victimization by taking on the role of a predator herself by victimizing
others in the process.
Many adults who fall into the bondage of paedophilia are victims of sexual abuse
as children. In a futile attempt to reconcile the horror of their own victimization,
they try to regain control of their lives through exploitation by continuing to
inflict wounds on their own souls and bodies.
Like David, I have fallen into lust and I am covered in filth; but wash me clean,
O Saviour, by my tears. (THE CANON OF ST. ANDREW, CANTICLE 2, VS. 54.)
O Lady, Thou hast brought forth our Joy: Grant me the Spirit of Mourning that in
the Coming Day of Judgement I may be Comforted by God. (THE CANON OF ST.
ANDREW, CANTICLE 9, VS. 327.)

...For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. (ROMANS 3:23)
For seventeen years, St Mary of Egypt lived a lifestyle that isolated her from the
community and God.
Covered with filth amassed over the years, her heart yet longed for Union with
God.
People in prison feel ostracized too - isolated from God and society - as they sit in
shame in prison cells longing for the same Tears of Repentance that lead to Joy
and Reconciliation.
Christ became Man, calling to Repentance thieves and harlots. Repent, my
soul! The Door of the Kingdom is already open, and Pharisees and Publicans
and adulterers pass through it before Thee, changing their lives. (THE CANON OF
ST. ANDREW, CANTICLE 9, VS. 342)

The Healing of the Venerable St Mary of Egypt was not instantaneous but required
a rigorous and lengthy Spiritual Journey.

give Thee thanks, O Lord, with my


whole heart: I will tell of all Thy
Wonders.

Dwelling

in the wilderness, Thou


blotted out every image of the
passions from Thy soul, having in
their place instead printed on Thy
soul the sublime Godlike Form of the
Holy Virtues. And Thou shone forth
to such an extent that Thou were
able to fly across the waters, O
Blessed One, and levitate above the
ground when Thou raised Thy hands
up to God in Prayer. Now, O Blessed
Mother, All Glorious Mary: as Thou
stand before our Master with
confidence, importunely pray for us.

Being led by the Holy Spirit, she retreated to the wilderness where she lived the Life
of a Hermit for seventeen years, seeking Freedom from bondage of the
passions.
She spent a further thirty years in the wilderness having obtained the True Gifts of
Repentance, Healing and Freedom from the enslavement of sin.
During Great Lent, each of us seeks Repentance, turning from our own vices and
passions and setting our minds and hearts on God.
Through the Intercessions of the most Holy Theotokos, God grants us the Gift of
Compunction to turn from our wounds and sins to find Healing and Comfort in
Him.
Let us remember St Mary of Egypt and her wonderful Redemption.
During the remainder of this Lenten Journey, may we pray to be freed from our
imprisonment to the passions that enslave us.
Let us also pray for Strength for all of our Brothers and Sisters who are imprisoned
in Penitentiaries both earthly and Spiritual Imprisonment - for their Struggles
and their Journeys to Repentance as well as our own.
Having been a sinful woman, Thou became through Repentance a Bride of
Christ. Having attained Angelic Life, Thou defeated demons with the
Weapon of the Cross! Therefore, O Most Glorious Mary, Thou art a Bride of the
Kingdom! (KONTAKION: TONE 3)
