In addition to the previously published petitions, which should be included at all divine services until further notice, His Eminence also encouraged the clergy of the Eastern American Diocese to add further petitions for the increase of love during the Divine Liturgy on Forgiveness Sunday. The petitions may also be used as part of a moleben that can be served upon completion of the Divine Liturgy.
