Twenty-Fourth Sunday After Pentecost

Entrance of the Mother of God into the TempleNovember 19, 2017
Twenty-Fourth Sunday After Pentecost


You have destroyed Death by Your Cross. * You opened Paradise to the thief. * You transformed the lament of the Myrrh-Bearers * and You commanded Your Apostles to proclaim: * that You, O Christ God, have risen, * granting great mercy to the world! (Troparion, Tone 7)

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

No longer can the might of Death keep hold over men, * for Christ has descended, crushing and destroying its power. * Hades is bound. * The Prophets rejoice with one voice, saying: * "The Savior has appeared to those are in faith. * Come forth, faithful, into the Resurrection." (Kontakion, Tone 7).
