From Vespers for the Expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise (February 22)

The Lord took a handful of dust from the earth. He breathed into it, and created me, a living man. He made me lord and master of all things on earth; truly I enjoyed the life of the Angels. But Satan the deceiver tempted me in the guise of a serpent; I ate the forbidden fruit and forfeited the glory of God. Now I have been delivered to the earth through death. O my compassionate Lord, call me back to Eden!

Adam ate the forbidden fruit and was driven from Paradise. He sat outside, weeping bitterly: “Woe to me! What will become of me, a worthless man? I disobeyed one command of my Master and lost every good thing! O holy Paradise, planted for me by God, and closed by the weakness of Eve, grant that I may once again gaze on the flowers of your gardens!” The Savior said to him: “I do not wish the death of my creation! I desire that all should be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth, for him who comes to me I shall never cast out!”
