St. Porphyrius, bishop of Gaza (420). Martyr Sebastian (66). New Martyr John Calphas (1575)

1 Cor. 8:8–9:2;     Mt. 25:31-46;

Resurrectional Tropar, Tone 7

By Your Cross, you destroyed Death. To the Thief, You opened Paradise. For the Myrrh-bearers, You changed weeping into joy. Christ God, You commanded Your disciples to proclaim that You are risen, granting the world great mercy.

Tropar of our church, Tone 4

Prophet and Forerunner of the coming of Christ, we who honor you with love can find no manner of praising you worthily. For the barrenness of one who bore you and the silence of your father have been ended by your being born of divine grace and you have proclaimed to the world the Incarnation of the Son of God.

Glory …
Kondak of our church, Tone 3

She who was previously barren now bears the Forerunner of Christ who is the fulfillment of every prophecy. For the prophets proclaimed beforehand that having laid hands on Him in the Jordan, he would be manifest as Prophet, Preacher and Forerunner of the Word of God.

Now and Ever …
Kondak from Triodion, Tone 1

When You come to the earth in Glory, O God, all creation will tremble The river of fire will flow before Your Judgment Seat. The books will be opened and all secrets disclosed. Deliver me then from the unquenchable fire and count me worthy to stand at Your Right Hand, Most Righteous Judge.


Priest: Let us be attentive! Peace be with you all!

Reader: And with your spirit!

Deacon: Wisdom!

Reader: The Prokimen in Tone 3: Great is our Lord and great is His power. His understanding is beyond measure.

Choir: (repeats the prokimen)

Reader: Vs: Praise the Lord, for a psalm is good thing; let praise be sweet to our God.

Choir: (repeats the prokimen)

Reader: Great is our Lord and great is His power.  …

Choir: … His understanding is beyond measure.


Deacon: Wisdom!

Reader: The reading is from the First Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians.

Deacon: Let us be attentive.

Reader: Brethren, food does not commend us to God; for neither if we eat are we the better, nor if we do not eat are we the worse. But beware lest somehow this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak. For if anyone sees you who have knowledge eating in an idol's temple, will not the conscience of him who is weak be emboldened to eat those things offered to idols? And because of your knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died? But when you thus sin against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never again eat meat, lest I make my brother stumble. Am I not an apostle? Am I not free? Have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord? If I am not an apostle to others, yet doubtless I am to you. For you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord.

Priest: Peace be with you.

Reader: And with your spirit. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Alleluia Verses

Verse: Come, let us greatly rejoice in the Lord; let us shout aloud to God our Savior.
