The Beheading of the Holy and Glorious Prophet, Forerunner and Baptist JohnOn August 29th we commemorate the Beheading of the Holy and Glorious Prophet, Forerunner and Baptist John (Strict Fast).

Apolytikion: The memory of the just is celebrated with hymns of praise, but the Lord’s testimony is sufficient for thee, O Forerunner; for thou hast proved to be truly even more venerable than the Prophets, since thou was granted to baptize in the running waters Him Whom they proclaimed. Wherefore, having contested for the truth, thou didst rejoice to announce the good tidings even to those in Hades: that God hath appeared in the flesh, taking away the sin of the world and granting us great mercy.
