Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!

Christ Not Made by HandsNovember 26, 2020
Thanksgiving Day


O Lord, we, Your unworthy servants, * are grateful for Your great benefits bestowed upon us. * Glorifying You, we praise and bless You, * we give You thanks and we sing and magnify Your tenderness of heart. * As servants, we cry out to You with love: * “O our Benefactor and Savior, glory to You!” (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 Master, we, as Your unworthy servants, * having been freely made worthy of Your benefits and gifts, * diligently come to You to offer thanksgiving according to our ability, * we cry out glorifying You as Benefactor and Creator: * “Glory to You, O All-Compassionate God!”(Kontakion - Tone 3)

The icon is "Christ Not Made by Hands".
