Byzantine hymn dedicated to Joseph the Patriarch on Holy Monday


This year, Greek Orthodox Easter is occurring during unprecedented times and as a result, we will not have the opportunity to celebrate the Anastasi in our churches.

Thus, The Greek Herald wants to participate in the mystagogy of Easter by offering you online access to the hymns of Holy Week every day.

Holy Monday is the next day of the celebration of Palm Sunday, where the week of the Passion of Jesus Christ begins. Today’s hymn is dedicated to the memory of Joseph, the son of Jacob, and the cursing of the barren fig tree by Christ.

You can listen to the hymn here:


Αυτές τις πρωτοφανείς ημέρες, που βιώνουμε όλοι, αρχίζει η εβδομάδα των Θείων Παθών. Δυστυχώς δεν θα έχουμε την ευκαιρία να βρεθούμε στις εκκλησίες σε ένα διαφορετικό Πάσχα, που θα βιώσουμε όλοι μας. Έτσι, ο «Ελληνικός Κήρυκας» θέλει να συμμετάσχει στη μυσταγωγία των ημερών προσφέροντας σας καθημερινά τους ύμνους της Μεγάλης Εβδομάδας.

Η Μεγάλη Δευτέρα είναι η επόμενη ημέρα του εορτασμού της Κυριακής των Βαΐων όπου και ξεκινά η εβδομάδα των Παθών του Ιησού Χριστού. Η Μεγάλη Δευτέρα είναι αφιερωμένη στη μνήμη του Ιωσήφ, του γιου του Ιακώβ, που αναφέρεται στη Παλαιά Διαθήκη και στην άκαρπη συκιά, που την καταράστηκε ο Χριστός και ξεράθηκε μ’ ένα του λόγο.
