Troparion and Kontakion of the Prophet Moses

Troparion — Tone 2

You ascended to the heights of the virtues, Prophet Moses; / therefore, you were deemed worthy to see the glory of God. / Having received the grace-filled tablets of the Law, / and bearing the grace of the writing within yourself, / you were the honorable praise of prophets, / and a great mystery of piety.

Kontakion — Tone 2

The choir of prophets rejoices with Moses and Aaron today, / for the fulfillment of their prophecy is in our midst. / The Cross, by which You have saved us, shines forth today. / By their prayers, O Christ God, have mercy on us.

New Well and Pump in Faran

Thanks to all who donated a new water pump and motor will soon be installed at The Holy Monastery of The Prophet Moses, Faran, Egypt. Sister Nektaria sent these photos on May 1, 2014. I have no captions so I’ll have to ask about that. My apologies in advance if I mis-identify anybody or anything.
