Saint Philaret the Merciful

14th Sunday of Luke


Saint Saint Philaret a native of Paphla-
Sophia gonia in Asia Minor, was a virtuous
Christian layman who lived in lawful
Cathedral wedlock and raised a family. He
was most renowned for his generos-
Miami, ity to all in need. With the permis-
Florida sion of God, in a short space of
time he lost the greater part of his
December 1st, possessions to theft and other mis-
2019 fortunes and was left with nothing
but his family, his home, and a little
Telephone: livestock. Yet he continued to give
305- 854-2922 generously to the poor despite the faint-heartedness of his family,
who reproached him for giving alms when they were in need them-
Fax: selves; and God, seeing his faith, restored his prosperity to him many
305-858-1854 times over. He foresaw the day of his death, and reposed in an odour
of sanctity in Constantinople in 789.

Resurrectional Apolytikion - Tone Grave

Κατέλυσας τῷ Σταυρῷ σου τὸν θάνατον

By means of Your Cross, O Lord, You abolished death. * To the robber You
opened Paradise. * The lamentation of the myrrhbearing women You transformed, *

and You gave Your Apostles the order to proclaim to all * that You had risen, O
Christ our God, * and granted the world Your great mercy.

Apolytikion for St. Sophia Tone 3

Χαίρει ἔχουσα ἡ Ἐκκλησία,

Having you and your three daughters as a sacred boast, the Church rejoices and
with gladness she praises you, You are to me my pride and joy, as are the most pre-
cious relics of your children; Oh Glorious Martyrs: Sophia, Faith, Hope and Love,

intercede to Christ our God to save our souls.

Kontakion Third Mode

Ἡ Παρθένος σήμερον,

On this day the Virgin cometh to the cave to give birth to * God the Word ineffably,
* Who was before all the ages. * Dance for joy, O earth, on hearing * the gladsome
tidings; * with the Angels and the shepherds now glorify Him * Who is willing to be

Wisdom of the Fathers

We may learn from this that when we ask with faith, God does not give something oth-

er than what we ask for, but the very same thing. However, when we ask for one thing

and receive something else, it is clear that either we did not make a good request or we

did not ask with faith. Blessed Theophylact, Archbishop of Ochrid and Bulgaria

Epistle Reading
St. Paul's Letter to the Galatians 3:23-29; 4:1-5.

BRETHREN, before faith came, we were confined under the law, kept under restraint until
faith should be revealed. So that the law was our custodian until Christ came, that we might be
justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a custodian; for in
Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into
Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free,
there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's,
then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise. I mean that the heir, as long as
he is a child, is no better than a slave, though he is the owner of all the estate; but he is under
guardians and trustees until the date set by the father. So with us; when we were children, we
were slaves to the elemental spirits of the universe. But when the time had fully come, God
sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the
law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

Gospel Reading:
Luke 13:10-17

At that time, Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. And there was a
woman who had a spirit of infirmity for eighteen years; she was bent over and could not fully
straighten herself. And when Jesus saw her, he called her and said to her, "Woman, you are
freed from your infirmity." And he laid his hands upon her, and immediately she was made
straight, and she praised God. But the ruler of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had
healed on the sabbath, said to the people, "There are six days on which work ought to be
done; come on those days and be healed, and not on the sabbath day." Then the Lord an-
swered him, "You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the sabbath untie his ox or his donkey
from the manger, and lead it away to water it? And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abra-
ham whom Satan bound for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?"
As he said this, all his adversaries were put to shame; and all the people rejoiced at all the glori-
