|“Behold, the Bridegroom comes at midnight, And blessed is that servant whom He shall find watching, And again, unworthy is the servant whom He shall find heedless. Beware, therefore, O my soul, do not be weighed down with sleep, Lest you be given up to death, and lest you be shut out of the Kingdom. But rouse yourself crying: Holy, Holy, Holy, art Thou, O our God, Through the Theotokos have mercy on us.”This icon represents Christ after being stripped, beaten with a reed, crowned with a crown of thorns, and dressed in a purple robe of mockery. It is displayed for veneration during the “Bridegroom” services during the first three days of Holy Week.|
