Fifteenth Week After Pentecost

August 31 - September 5, 2015
Fifteenth Week After Pentecost

Let us, O faithful, praise and worship the Word * Who, with the Father and the Spirit, is without beginning, * and Who was born from the Virgin for our salvation, * for He was well pleased to ascend the Cross in the flesh and to endure death, * and to raise the dead by His glorious Resurrection. (Troparion - Tone 5)

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

O my Savior, You descended into Hades, * and, having broken its gates as the All-Powerful, You, as Creator, raised up the dead with You; * and, You broke the sting of death, and delivered Adam from the curse, O Lover of Mankind. * Therefore, we all cry out to You: “O Lord, save us!” (Kontakion - Tone 5)

The icon is of the Beheading of Saint John the Baptist (August 29th).
