04/09/12: Beginning of the Process of Sanctification of Holy Myron

On Holy Monday, April 9, 2012, following the Divine Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts at the Patriarchal Church of St. George, His All-Holiness blessed the beginning of the process of sanctification of the Holy Myron in a special office.

The Ecumenical Patriarch sprinkles holy water on the prepared materials, the utensils to be used, and the ancient copper boilers. Then, holding a lighted candle, he touches each boiler, placing pieces of old charred holy icons inside. At the conclusion of the service, the Patriarch reads from the Book of Holy Gospels. The reading of the New Testament is continued by those in attendance, including hierarchs, clergy from the Phanar, as well as visiting clergy. This order of readings will continue throughout the day on Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday, and Holy Wednesday.
