Canon of St. Andrew: I have stained the coat of my flesh, and soiled what is in Thy image and likeness . . .

JesusI have stained the coat of my flesh, and soiled what is in Thy image and likeness, O Savior.

I have darkened the beauty of my soul with passionate pleasures, and my whole mind I have reduced wholly to mud.
