Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!

Publican and PhariseeJanuary 24, 2021
Sunday of the Publican and Pharisee


Though the stone had been sealed by the Jews, * and the soldiers were guarding Your most pure body, * You, O Savior arose on the third day granting life to the world. * Therefore, the heavenly Powers cried out to You, O Giver of Life: * "Glory to Your Resurrection, O Christ! * Glory to Your Kingdom! * Glory to Your divine plan! * O You, Who alone loves mankind!" (Troparion - Tone 1)

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

Let us bring to the Lord the sighs of the Publican * and, as sinners, let us fall down before Him, as Master; * for He desires the salvation of all mankind. * He grants forgiveness to all who repent. * For us, He took flesh though He is God, co-eternal with the Father. (Kontakion of the Publican and Pharisee- Tone 3)

The icon is of the Publican and Pharisee (Luke 18:10-14).
