SAINT SOPHIA CATHEDRAL

MIAMI, FLORIDA

Sunday, July 22th, 2018

8th Sunday of Matthew

Saint Mary was from Magdala in Galilee on the Sea of Tiberi-
as, and for this was named Magdalene. When the Lord Jesus
cast out seven demons from her, from which she had been suffer-
ing, she became His faithful and inseparable disciple, following
Him and ministering unto Him even to the time of His crucifixion
and burial. Then, returning to Jerusalem together with the rest of
the Myrrh-bearers, she prepared the fragrant spices for anointing
the body of the Lord. And on the Lord's day they came very ear-
ly to the tomb, even before the Angels appeared declaring the
Resurrection of the Lord. When Mary Magdalene saw the stone
taken away from the tomb, she ran and proclaimed it to Peter and
John. And returning immediately to the tomb and weeping out-
side, she was deemed worthy to be the first of the Myrrh-bearers to behold the Lord arisen
from the dead, and when she fell at His feet, she heard Him say, "Touch Me not." After the
Lord's Ascension, nothing certain is known concerning her. Some accounts say that she went
to Rome and later returned to Jerusalem, and from there proceeded to Ephesus, where she
ended her life, preaching Christ. Although it is sometimes said that Saint Mary Magdalene
was the "sinful woman" of the Gospel, this is nowhere stated in the tradition of the Church, in
the sacred hymnology, or in the Holy Gospels themselves, which say only that our Lord cast
seven demons out of her, not that she was a fallen woman. "Madeleine" is a form of Magdalene.

Liturgical Guide

Apolytikion for the Resurrection– Tone PL 3

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 myrrh-bearing 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 Mary Magdalene Tone 1

Χριστώ τώ δι' ημάς, εκ Παρθένου τεχθέντι

When Christ God had been born for our sakes from the Virgin, thou faithfully didst follow him,
keeping His statutes and heeding His sacred laws, O august Mary Magdalene. Hence, as we

today observe thy holy remembrance, we receive the loosing of our sins and transgressions
through thy holy prayers for us.

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 precious relics
of your children; Oh Glorious Martyrs: Sophia, Faith, Hope and Love, intercede to

Christ our God to save our souls.

O Protection of Christians that cannot be put to shame, mediation unto the creator
most constant: O despise not the voices of those who have sinned; but be quick, O
good one, to come unto our aid, who in faith cry unto thee: Hasten to intercession and
speed thou to make supplication, O thou who dost ever protect, O Theotokos, them

that honor thee

Scripture Readings

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 nei-
ther 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:

The Reading is from Matthew 14:14-22

At that time, Jesus saw a great throng; and he had compassion on them, and healed their sick.
When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, "This is a lonely place, and the day is
now over; send the crowds away to go into the villages and buy food for themselves." Jesus said,
"They need not go away; you give them something to eat." They said to him, "We have only five
loaves here and two fish." And he said, "Bring them here to me." Then he ordered the crowds
to sit down on the grass; and taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven, and
blessed, and broke and gave the loaves to the crowds. And they all ate and were satisfied. And
they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over. And those who ate were about
five thousand men, besides women and children. Then he made the disciples get into the boat
and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds.
