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 2 Troparion        (from the Pentecostarion)

The noble Joseph,/ when he had taken down Thy most pure Body from the Tree,/ wrapped it in fine linen and anointed it with spices,/ and placed it in a new tomb./ But Thou didst arise on the third day, O Lord,// granting the world great mercy.


Tone 2 Troparion        (from the Pentecostarion)

The Angel came to the myrrhbearing women at the tomb and said:/ “Myrrh is fitting for the dead;/ but Christ has shown Himself a stranger to corruption!/ So proclaim: ‘The Lord is risen,// granting the world great mercy.’”


Glory…; Tone 2         Kontakion     (from the Pentecostarion)

Thou didst command the Myrrhbearers to rejoice, O Christ God./ By Thy Resurrection, Thou didst stop the lamentation of Eve, the first mother./ Thou didst command them to preach to Thine Apostles:// “The Savior is risen from the tomb!”


Now and Ever… Tone 8       Kontakion  (Pascha)

Thou didst descend into the tomb, O Immortal,/ Thou didst destroy the power of death./ In victory Thou didst arise, O Christ God,/ proclaiming, “Rejoice!” to the Myrrhbearing Women,// granting peace to Thine Apostles, and bestowing Resurrection on the fallen.


Tone 6 Prokeimenon (Ps 27/28:9,1) : O Lord, save Thy people and bless Thine inheritance!  v: To Thee, O Lord, will I call. O my God, be not silent to me!


Epistle: Acts 6:1-7  1  Now in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint against the Hebrews by the Hellenists, because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution. 2  Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable that we should leave the word of God and serve tables. 3  Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of ”uc">good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business; 4  but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word." 5  And the saying pleased the whole multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch, 6  whom they set before the apostles; and when they had prayed, they laid hands on them. 7  Then the word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were obedient to the faith.


Tone 8 Alleluia! (Ps 84/85:1,10) v: O Lord, Thou hast been gracious to Thy land; Thou hast turned back the captivity of Jacob.  v: Mercy and truth are met together, righteousness and peace have kissed each other. 


Gospel: Mark 15:43-16:8


(Instead of “It is truly meet …,” we sing:)


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: Romanian

Tatăl nostru  /

Carele ești în ceruri,/

Sfințească-Se numele Tău,/

Vie împărăția Ta,/

Facă-se voia Ta,/

Precum în cer,/ așa și pe pământ./

Pâinea noastră / cea de toate zilele/

Dă-ne-o nouă astăzi./

Și ne iartă nouă / greșalele noastre,/

Precum și noi iertăm/  greșiților noștri./

Și nu ne duce pe noi în ispită,/

Ci ne izbăvește de cel rău.
