All SaintsFirst Sunday After Pentecost
All Saints

Adorned with the blood of Your Martyrs throughout the world, * as with purple and fine linen, * Your Church cries out to You through them: * "Send down Your compassions upon Your people. * Grant peace to Your commonwealth and great mercy to our souls." (Troparion - Tone 4)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

The whole world offers to You, O Lord, the God-bearing martyrs * as the first-fruits of nature to the Planter of Creation. * Through their prayers and the intercession of the Mother of God, * preserve Your Church, Your commonwealth, in profound peace, O Most Merciful One. (Kontakion - Tone 8)
