Let us fall down before His Tomb

Let us also fall down before His Tomb, my dear ones. Let us fall down with tears, saying: “Merciful Lord, we do not have the precious myrrh of the virtues with which to anoint Your all-pure body. We have nothing, although we, too, would like to bring You something that is good and precious. But accept these our tears, as You accepted the widow’s two mites. Accept this our worship, our nocturnal wakefulness, and our small prayer, that we may be found worthy of seeing Your glorious Resurrection.”

- Archimandrite Tikhon Agrikov
