Resurrectional Apolytikion - Tone 2

Ὅτε κατῆλθες πρὸς τὸν θάνατον

When Thou didst descend unto death, O Life Immortal, then didst Thou slay
Hades with the lightning of Thy Divinity. And when Thou didst also raise the dead
out of the nethermost depths, all the powers in the Heavens cried out: O Life-giver,

Christ our God, glory be to Thee.

Apolytikion for the Relics of Saint John Chrysosotom PL. 4

Ἡ τοῦ στόματός σου καθάπερ πυρσὸς ἐκλάμψασα χάρις,

Grace shining forth from thy mouth like a beacon hath illumined the universe, and dis-
closed to the world treasures of uncovetousness, and shown us the heights of humility;
but while instructing us by thy words, O Father John Chrysostom, intercede with the

Word, Christ our God, to save our souls.

Apolytikion for St. Sophia Tone 3

Χαίρει ἔχουσα ἡ Ἐκκλησία, σὲ καὶ τέκνα σου καύχημα θεῖον,

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 precious
relics of your children; Oh Glorious Martyrs: Sophia, Faith, Hope and Love, inter-
cede to Christ our God to save our souls.



u Ὁ μήτραν παρθενικὴν ἁγιάσας τῶ τόκω σου,

Your birth sanctified a Virgin's womb and properly blessed the hands of Symeon.
Having now come and saved us O Christ our God, give peace to Your common-
wealth in troubled times and strengthen those in authority, whom You love, as only the

loving One.

Scripture Readings

Epistle Reading:

St. Paul's Letter to the Hebrews 7:26-28; 8:1-2.

Brethren, it was fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, blameless, un-
stained, separated from sinners, exalted above the heavens. He has no need, like
those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of
the people; he did this once for all when he offered up himself. Indeed, the law ap-
points men in their weakness as high priests, but the word of the oath, which came lat-
er than the law, appoints a Son who has been made perfect for ever. Now the point in
what we are saying is this: we have such a high priest, one who is seated at the right
hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, a minister in the sanctuary and the true
tent which is set up not by man but by the Lord.

Gospel Reading:

The Reading is from Luke 19:1-10

At that time, Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through Jericho. And there
was a man named Zacchaios; he was a chief collector, and rich. And he sought to see
who Jesus was, but could not, on account of the crowd, because he was small of stat-
ure. So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was to
pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him,
"Zacchaios, make haste and come down; for I must stay at your house today." So he
made haste and came down, and received him joyfully. And when they saw it they all
murmured, "He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner." And Zacchaios
stood and said to the Lord, "Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor;
and if I have defrauded any one of anything, I restore it fourfold." And Jesus said to
him, "Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. For
the Son of man came to seek and to save the lost."
