Saint Close to the Sheep's Gate in Jerusalem, there was a pool, which was
Sophia called the Sheep's Pool. It had round about it five porches, that is, five
sets of pillars supporting a domed roof. Under this roof there lay very
Cathedal many sick people with various maladies, awaiting the moving of the water.
The first to step in after the troubling of the water was healed immedi-
Miami, ately of whatever malady he had. It was there that the paralytic of to-
Florida day's Gospel way lying, tormented by his infirmity of thirty-eight years.
When Christ beheld him, He asked him, "Wilt thou be made whole?"
May 19, 2019 And he answered with a quiet and meek voice, "Sir, I have no man, when
the water is troubled, to put me into the pool." The Lord said unto him,
"Rise, take up thy bed, and walk." And straightaway the man was made
whole and took up his bed. Walking in the presence of all, he departed
rejoicing to his own house. According to the expounders of the Gos-

Apolytikion of Great and Holy Pascha in the Plagal First Mode
Χριστός ἀνέστη ἐκ νεκρῶν

Christ is risen from the dead, by death, trampling down upon death, and to those in the
tombs He has granted life.

Resurrectional Apolytikion Tone 3
Εὐφραινέσθω τὰ οὐράνια,

Let the Heavens rejoice; let earthly things be glad; for the Lord hath wrought might with His
arm, He hath trampled upon death by death. The first-born of the dead hath He become.
From the belly of Hades hath He delivered us, and hath granted great mercy to the world

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 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.

Kontakion Tone PL. 2
Εἰ καὶ ἐν τάφῳ κατῆλθες ἀθάνατε,

Though You went down into the tomb, You destroyed Hades' power, and You rose the
victor, Christ God, saying to the myrrh-bearing women, "Hail!" and granting peace to Your

disciples, You who raise up the fallen.

Scripture Readings

Epistle Reading:
Acts of the Apostles 9:32-42.

IN THOSE DAYS, as Peter went here and there among them all, he came down al-
so to the saints that lived at Lydda. There he found a man named Aeneas, who had
been bedridden for eight years and was paralyzed. And Peter said to him, "Aeneas, Je-
sus Christ heals you; rise and make your bed." And immediately he rose. And all the resi-
dents of Lydda and Sharon saw him, and they turned to the Lord. Now there was at
Joppa a disciple named Tabitha, which means Dorcas. She was full of good works and
acts of charity. In those days she fell sick and died; and when they had washed her, they
laid her in an upper room. Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples, hearing that Peter
was there, sent two men to him entreating him, "Please come to us without delay." So Pe-
ter rose and went with them. And when he had come, they took him to the upper room.
All the widows stood beside him weeping, and showing tunics and other garments which
Dorcas made while she was with them. But Peter put them all outside and knelt down and
prayed; then turning to the body he said, "Tabitha, rise." And she opened her eyes, and
when she saw Peter she sat up. And he gave her his hand and lifted her up. Then calling
the saints and widows he presented her alive. And it became known throughout all Jop-
pa, and many believed in the Lord.

Gospel Reading:

The Reading is from John 5:1-15

At that time, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep
Gate a pool, in Hebrew called Bethesda which has five porticoes. In these lay a multi-
tude of invalids, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water; for an angel of
the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool, and troubled the water; whoever
stepped in first after the troubling of the water was healed of whatever disease he had.
One man was there, who had been ill for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him and
knew that he had been lying there a long time, he said to him, "Do you want to be

healed?" The sick man answered him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when
the water is troubled, and while I am going another steps down before me." Jesus said
to him, "Rise, take up your pallet, and walk." And at once the man was healed, and he
took up his pallet and walked. Now that day was the sabbath. So the Jews said to
the man who was cured, "It is the sabbath, it is not lawful for you to carry your pallet."
But he answered them, "The man who healed me said to me, 'Take up your pallet, and
walk.' "They asked him, "Who is the man who said to you, 'Take up your pallet, and
walk'?" Now the man who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had
withdrawn, as there was a crowd in the place. Afterward, Jesus found him in the tem-
ple, and said to him, "See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse befall you."
The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him.

pels, the Lord Jesus healed this paralytic during the days of the Passover, when He had
gone to Jerusalem for the Feast, and dwelt there teaching and working miracles. According to
Saint John the Evangelist, this miracle took place on the Sabbath.
