Twenty-Fourth Week After Pentecost

Saint John ChrysostomNovember 13-19, 2017
Twenty-Fourth Week After Pentecost

Angelic Powers were at Your tomb * and the guards became like dead men. * Mary stood in the tomb, seeking Your most pure Body. * You despoiled Hades without being tempted by it. * You met the virgin, granting life. * O Lord, risen from the dead, glory to You!” (Troparion, Tone 6)

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

When Christ God, the Life-giver, * with His life-giving hand raised the dead from the dark abyss, * He granted resurrection to all mankind; * for He is the Savior of all, resurrection and life, and the God of all that is. (Kontakion, Tone 6).

The icon is of Saint John Chrysostom (November 13th)
