1st Sunday of the Great Fast - Defense of Icons

On the first Sunday of Great Lent the “Triumph of Orthodoxy” is celebrated, which was established by the Empress Theodora in 842 A.D. in memory of the restoration of the veneration of the holy icons. At the conclusion of the Liturgy a Service of Intercession (“Moleben”) is held in the center of the church before icons of the Saviour and the Theotokos, asking that the Lord confirm Orthodox Christians in the faith and bring back to the path of truth all those who have apostatized from the Church. The deacon reads the Creed solemnly and pronounces the anathemas, proclaiming that all those who have presumed to distort the true Orthodox Christian Faith are separated from the Church. He then intones “Eternal Memory” for all the reposed defenders of the Orthodox Faith, and finally, “Many Years,” for all those who are living. This service is customarily done in the presence of a bishop.
