Glory to Jesus Christ! + Glory Forever!

DetailFebruary 17-20, 2020
Cheese-Fare Week

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; * for the Lord has shown might with his arm. * By His death the Lord has trampled Death; * He has become the first-born of the dead. * He has delivered us from the belly of Hades * and has granted great mercy to the world. (Troparion - Tone 3)

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

When You, O God, shall come to earth in glory, * all things shall tremble and the river of fire shall flow before Your judgment seat; * the books will be opened and the hidden things revealed. * Then deliver me from the unquenchable fire, * and make me worthy to stand at Your right hand, O righteous Judge. (Kontakion of Meatfare - Tone 3)

The icon is a detail of the Last Judgment.
