~~~~Year 7527 of the Byzantine Era~~~~

May 21 – The holy emperor Constantine and his mother Helen, equal to the apostles. Constantine reigned in ancient Rome and in Byzantium (which became New Rome), and was the first Christian emperor, champion of the Faith. Though he was not baptized until on his deathbed, he considered himself a Christian, and called the First Ecumenical Council at Nicea in 325 to settle the Arian heresy. (337) On the Via Labicana in old Rome, Helen, the mother of Constantine the emperor is remembered. She single mindedly worked to help the needy and piously visited churches, mingling with the crowds. Having made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem to see the places of the Nativity, Passion, and Resurrection of Christ, she honored the manger and cross of the Lord by building basilicas worthy of respect. (327)

Leaders of the heavenly armies,
although we are unworthy, we always beseech you,
to fortify us by your prayers and to shelter us beneath the wings of your sublime glory. 
Watch over us who bow to you and cry out fervently: 
Deliver us from danger, for you are the commanders of the powers on high.
                                        – Troparion for Saint Michael and the Holy Angels

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.

The Lord is at hand. Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  Philippians: 4:5-6 (RSVCE)


Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!
