Movable Portions of the Liturgy

Troparion Resurrection, Tone 5

Let us, the faithful; praise and worship the Word, co-eternal with the Father and the Spirit, born for our salvation from the Virgin; for He willed to be lifted up on the cross in the flesh, to endure death, and to raise the dead by His Glorious Resurrection!                 

            Glory… Kontakion  of the Blind Man Tone 4

I come to You, O Christ, / Blind from birth in my spiritual eyes/ And I call to You in repentance:// You are the most radiant light of those in darkness!

 Now and ever… Kontakion Pascha Tone 8 

You descended into the tomb, O Immortal, You destroyed the power of death. In victory You arose, O Christ God, proclaiming: “Rejoice!” to the Myrrh-bearing Women,// granting peace to Your Apostles, and bestowing Resurrection on the fallen.

 Trisagion (Romanian): Sfinte Dumnezeule, Sfinte Tare, Sfinte Fără de moarte, Miluieşte-ne pe noi.

 PROKEIMENON (“What is to be set forth”) (Tone 8) Pray and make your vows/ before the Lord our God! Vs. In Judah God is known; His name is great in Israel. (Ps. 75:12,2)

 EPISTLE: Acts 16:16-34 (Sunday)

16Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling.17This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.” 18And this she did for many days. But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour. 19But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities. 20And they brought them to the magistrates, and said, “These men, being Jews, exceedingly trouble our city; 21”and they teach customs which are not lawful for us, being Romans, to receive or observe."22Then the multitude rose up together against them; and the magistrates tore off their clothes and commanded them to be beaten with rods. 23And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. 24Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.

25But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed. 27And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself. 28But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.” 29Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. 30And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” 32Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house. 33And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized. 34Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.

ALLELUIA: Look upon me and have mercy on me. Vs. Guide my steps according to Thy word. (Ps.118:132,133)

 GOSPEL: John 9:1-38 (Blind man)

The Angel cried to the Lady, full of grace: “Rejoice, O pure Virgin!  Again, I say: ‘Rejoice, your Son is risen from His three days in the tomb! With Himself He has raised all the dead.’” Rejoice, O ye people! 

Shine, shine, O new Jerusalem! The glory of the Lord has shone on you! Exult now, and be glad, O Zion! Be radiant, O pure Theotokos, in the Resurrection of your Son!


This Month’s Lord’s Prayer: Spanish

Padre nuestro, que estás en los cielos, santificado sea tu nombre. Venga tu reino. Hágase tu voluntad, en la tierra como en el cielo. El pan nuestro de cada día, dánoslo hoy. Perdónanos nuestras deudas, como también nosotros perdonamos a nuestros deudores. No nos metas en tentación, sino líbranos del mal. [Porque Tuyo es el raino, y el poder, y la Gloria, del Padre, del Hijo, y del Espiritu Santo, ahora y siempre por los siglos de los siglos, amen.]
