Orthodox Tidbits St. Dorotheos On Lenten Fast
In the Law, God laid down that the sons of Israel should each year give tithes of all they possessed, and if they did so they were blessed in all
their works. The holy Apostles, knowing this to be for the help and advancement of our souls, resolved to fulfil it in a better and higher
way, namely, for us to deliver up a tithe of the very days of our lives as if to consecrate them to God, so that we may be blessed in all
our works, and each year to be unburdened of the whole year’s sins.
