 Protection of the Mother of GodTwenty-Second Week after Pentecost

The joyful message of the resurrection * was heard by the woman disciples of the Lord from the Angel, * and, having cast off the ancestral sentence, * they spoke to the apostles triumphantly: * "Death has been despoiled * Christ God is risen, * granting great mercy to the world.” (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.

O my Savior and Redeemer, * from the tomb, as God, You raised from their bonds all those born on earth * and destroyed the gates of Hades; * and, as Lord, You arose on the third day. (Kontakion - Tone 4)

The Icon is of the Protection of the Mother of God (October 1st).
