Resurrectional Apolytikion - Tone 4
Τὸ φαιδρὸν τῆς Ἀναστάσεως κήρυγμα,

When the women Disciples of the Lord had learned from the Angel the joyful message of the
Resurrection and had rejected the ancestral decision, they cried aloud to the Apostles trium-
phantly: Death has been despoiled, Christ God has risen, granting His great mercy to the


Apolytikion for Saint John Climicus –Plagel 4
Ταίς τών δακρύων σου ροαίς, τής ερήμου τό άγονον εγεώργησας .
With the streams of thy tears, thou didst cultivate the barrenness of the desert; and by thy
sighings from the depths,thou didst bear fruit a hundredfold in labours; and thou becamest a
luminary, shining with miracles upon the world, O John our righteous Father. Intercede with

Christ God that our souls be saved.

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 glad-
ness she praises you, You are to me my pride and joy, as are the most precious relics of your

children; Oh Glorious Martyrs: Sophia, Faith, Hope and Love, intercede to Christ our
God to save our souls.

Τὴ ὑπερμάχω στρατηγῶ τὰ νικητήρια,

To you, Theotokos, invincible Defender, having been delivered from peril, I, your city, dedi-
cate the victory festival as a thank offering. In your irresistible might, keep me safe from all tri-

als, that I may call out to you: "Hail, unwedded bride!"

Epistle Reading:

St. Paul's Letter to the Hebrews 6:13-20.

RETHREN, when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom
to swear, he swore to himself, saying, "Surely I will bless you and multiply you." And thus

Abraham, having patiently endured, obtained the promise. Men indeed swear by a greater than
themselves, and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation. So when God desired to
show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose,
he interposed with an oath, so that through two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible
that God should prove false, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to
seize the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope
that enters into the inner shrine behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on
our behalf, having become a high priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek

Gospel Reading:

Mark 9:17-31

At that time, a man came to Jesus kneeling and saying: "Teacher, I brought my son to you, for
he has a dumb spirit; and wherever it seizes him it dashes him down; and he foams and grinds his
teeth and becomes rigid; and I asked your disciples to cast it out, and they were not able." And
he answered them, "O faithless generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to
bear with you? Bring him to me." And they brought the boy to him; and when the spirit saw him,
immediately it convulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the
mouth. And Jesus asked his father, "How long has he had this?" And he said, "From child-
hood. And it has often cast him into the fire and into the water, to destroy him; but if you can
do anything, have pity on us and help us." And Jesus said to him, "If you can! All things are
possible to him who believes." Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, "I believe;
help my unbelief!" And when Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the
unclean spirit, saying to it, "You dumb and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him, and nev-
er enter him again." And after crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy
was like a corpse; so that most of them said, "He is dead." But Jesus took him by the hand and
lifted him up, and he arose. And when he had entered the house, his disciples asked him pri-
vately, "Why could we not cast it out?" And he said to them, "This kind cannot be driven out
by anything but prayer and fasting." They went on from there and passed through Galilee.
And he would not have any one know it; for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, "The
Son of man will be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him; and when he is killed,
after three days he will rise."
