St. Theophan the Recluse

Thursday. [Jude 1:11–25; Luke 23:1–34, 44–56]

Woe, proclaims the Holy Apostle Jude, to them who conduct themselves temptingly in society, who without fear fatten themselves at feasts, who foam out their own shame, walk after their own lusts, speak great swelling words and separate themselves from the unity of the faith. Woe! For behold, the Lord will come with ten thousands of His holy angels, to execute judgement upon all, and to expose all that are ungodly in all their ungodly deeds which their ungodliness has committed (cf. Jude 1:11–19).
