June 29, 2017 | Holy Apostles Peter & Paul
O first-enthroned of the apostles * and teachers of the whole world. * Entreat the Master of All * to grant peace to the world * 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.
O Lord, You have received the steadfast and divinely eloquent preachers, * the foremost of Your apostles, * into the enjoyment of your good gifts and repose. * You have accepted their sufferings and death above any whole-burnt offering, * O You Who alone knows the secrets of the heart. (Kontakion, Tone 2)
