Fifth Week After Pentecost

June 28, 2015
Fifth Sunday After Pentecost

O first-enthroned of the apostles * and teachers of the whole world. * Beseech 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)

The icon is of the Holy Apostles, Peter & Paul (June 29th).
