Nativity Fast: Come, Lord Jesus, Come!

Christ Not Made by HandsDecember 6, 2020
Twenty-Seventh Sunday After Pentecost
Feast of Saint Nicholas of Myra


The truth of your deeds has revealed you to your flock, * as a rule of faith, an image of meekness, and a teacher of abstinence. * Therefore, you attained the heights through humility, * and riches through poverty. * O Father and Hierarch Nicholas, * pray to Christ God that our souls may be saved. (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.

In Myra, You were shown to be a servant of the sacred things, O Holy Nicholas, * for, fulfilling the Gospel of Christ, you, O Venerable, laid down your life for your people, * and saved the innocent from death. * Therefore, you were sanctified as a great initiate of the grace of God.(Kontakion - Tone 3)

The icon is of Saint Nicholas of Myra (December 6th).
