Third Sunday After Pentecost

Jesus Christ the Life-Giver June 25, 2017 | Third Sunday After Pentecost

O Prophet and Forerunner of the Coming of Christ, * we who honor you with love do not know how to praise you worthily; * for through your glorious and honored birth * your mother’s barrenness and your father’s voicelessness were loosened * and the Incarnation of the Son of God * was proclaimed 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.

Today, she who once was barren, gives birth to the Forerunner of Christ, * and he is the fulfillment of all prophecy; * for, when he, in the Jordan, laid his hand on Him Whom the prophets foretold, * he has been shown to be the Prophet, the Herald and the Forerunner of the Word of God. (Kontakion, Tone 3)
