  • RESURRECTIONAL APOLYTIKION (TONE 5)Let us believers praise and worship the Word; coeternal with the Father and the Spirit,

    born of the Virgin for our salvation. For, He took pleasure in ascending the Cross in the flesh to suffer death; and to raise the dead by His glorious Resurrection.

    APOLYTIKION OF ST. MAMAS (TONE 4)Thy Martyr, O Lord, in his courageous contest for Thee received as the prize the crowns of incorruption and life from Thee, our immortal God. For since he possessed Thy strength,

    he cast down the tyrants and wholly destroyed the demons strengthless presumption. O Christ God, by his prayers, save our souls, since Thou art merciful.

    APOLYTIKION OF ST. GEORGE (TONE 4)As deliverer of captives and defender of the poor, healer of the infirm, champion of kings,

    victorious Great Martyr George intercede with Christ our God for our souls salvation.

    KONTAKION OF THE NATIVITY OF THE THEOTOKOS (TONE 4)Joachim and Anna were freed from the reproach of childlessness, and Adam and Eve

    from the corruption of death, O immaculate one, by thy holy Nativity, which thy people, redeemed from guilt of offences, celebrate by crying to thee:

    The barren woman giveth birth to the Theotokos, the nourisher of our life.

    PROKEIMENON: Thou, O Lord, wilt keep and preserve us. Save me, O Lord, for the godly man has failed.

    THE EPISTLEThe Reading from the Second Epistle of St. Paul to the Corinthians. (1:21-2:4)

    Brethren, it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has commissioned us; He has put his seal upon us and given us His Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

    But I call God to witness against meit was to spare you that I refrained from coming to Corinth. Not that we lord it over your faith; we work with you for your joy, for you stand firm in your faith.

    For I made up my mind not to make you another painful visit. For if I cause you pain, who is there to make me glad but the one whom I have pained? And I wrote as I did,

    so that when I came I might not suffer pain from those who should have made me rejoice, for I felt sure of all of you, that my joy would be the joy of you all.

    For I wrote you out of much affliction and anguish of heart and with many tears, not to cause you pain but to let you know the abundant love that I have for you.

    THE GOSPELThe Reading from the Holy Gospel according to St. Matthew. (22:2-14)The Lord spoke this parable: The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a marriage feast for his son, and sent his servants to call those who were invited to the marriage feast; but they would not come. Again he sent other servants, saying, Tell those who are invited, Behold, I have made ready my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves are killed, and everything is ready; come to the marriage feast. But they made light of it and went off, one to his farm, another to his business, while the rest seized his servants, treated them shamefully, and killed them. The king was angry, and he sent his troops and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. Then he said to his servants, The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore to the thoroughfares, and invite to the marriage feast as many as you find. And those servants went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both bad and good; so the wedding hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment; and he said to him, Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then the king said to the attendants, Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.
