"On Monday of the First Week of Lent, during Great Compline, after Psalm 69, the first portion of the Great Canon is sung. The Eirmosi are sung twice, once at the beginning and once at the end of each Ode.1 Before each troparion the Refrain is sung and we make the sign of the Cross with three low bows."

I expect that much of Ode 9 will appear in my Ash Wednesday homily.
