Great Canon of St Andrew of Crete with Reading of the Life of St Mary of Egypt

The Great Canon of St Andrew, Bishop of Crete, is the longest canon in all of our services, and is associated with Great Lent, since the only times it is appointed to be read in church at Matins for Thursday of the fifth week of Great Lent, when it is read in its entirety (in this service, the entire life of St Mary of Egypt is also read).
