On This Eve of the Apostles’ Fast . . .

. . . may I recommend one of my priest’s Pastoral Ponderings:

The Twelve Apostles
(mp3 file)

As well as an Akathist one might pray in the next couple of weeks:

Akathist to Saints Peter and Paul

(I might add that Bp Basil of Wichita has asked that the Akathist to the Holy Apostles be prayed not only during the entire fast but especially the first couple of days of the Fast during the meeting of the Holy Synod of Antioch.)
