Movable Portions of the Liturgy

Tone 2            Troparion      (Resurrection)

When Thou didst descend to death, O Life immortal,/ Thou didst slay hell with the splendor of Thy Godhead./ And when from the depths Thou didst raise the dead,/ all the powers of heaven cried out:// “O Giver of life, Christ our God, glory to Thee!”

Tone 4             Troparion Protection of the Mother of God

Today the faithful celebrate the feast with joy,/ illumined by your coming, O Mother of God./ Beholding your pure image, we fervently cry to you:/ “Encompass us beneath the precious veil of your protection./ Deliver us from every form of evil,/ by entreating Christ, your Son and our God,// that He may save our souls!”

 Tone 4            Troparion        (from the Menaion, for the Martyrs)

Your holy martyrs Manuel, Sabel, and Ismael, O Lord,/ through their sufferings have received incorruptible crowns from You, our God./ For having Your strength, they laid low their adversaries,/ and shattered the powerless boldness of demons.// Through their intercessions, save our souls!

Tone 2             Kontakion       (Resurrection)

Hell became afraid, O almighty Savior,/ seeing the miracle of Your Resurrection from the tomb!/ The dead arose!  Creation, with Adam, beheld this and rejoiced with You,// and the world, my Savior, praises You forever.

Glory… Tone 2          Kontakion       (from the Menaion, for the Martyrs)

Because of your perfect faith in Christ, all-blessed martyrs,/ you drank the cup of His sufferings with generous hearts./ You renounced the idols of Persia,/ and, yourselves three in number, proclaimed your belief in the Holy Trinity.// We ever beseech you to pray for us all.

Now and Ever… Tone 3 Kontakion Protection of the Mother of God

The Virgin is present today in the Church/ And with the fellowship of saints she prays to God on our behalf./ The angels and the bishops worship!/ The apostles and the prophets make glad!// For the Theotokos makes supplications for us to the everlasting God!


Trisagion: (Romanian) Sfinte Dumnezeule, Sfinte tare, Sfinte fara de moarte, miluieste-ne pe noi.

PROKEIMENON (Ps 117/118:4,18) The Lord is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation. v: The Lord has chastened me sorely, but He has not given me over to death.

Epistle: Romans 5: 1-10

Brethren, 1Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. 6For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

Alleluia: (Ps. 19/20:1,9) v: May the Lord hear you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!  v: Save the King, O Lord, and hear us on the day we call!

Gospel: Matthew 6:22-33

The Lord said, 22“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. 23“But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! 24“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. 25“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26“Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27“Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? 28“So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29“and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30“Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32“For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

This Month’s Lord’s Prayer: French

Notre Père,

Qui es aux cieux                              

Que Ton Nom soit sanctifié,

Que Ton Règne arrive,                                           

Que Ta Volonté soit faite

Sur la terre comme au ciel.                       

Donne-nous aujourd’hui

Notre pain substantiel                                            

Et remets-nous nos dettes

Comme nous remettons à nos débiteurs,

Et ne nous soumets pas à l’épreuve,

Mais délivre-nous du Malin.
