Eighth Week After Pentecost

Elias July 24-30, 2017 | Eighth Week After Pentecost

The glorious Elias, * an angel in the flesh, the foundation of prophets and the second Forerunner of the coming of Christ * sent grace from on high to Eliseus * to drive away sickness and cleanse lepers. * Wherefore, he pours forth healings for those who honor him. (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 Prophet and foreseer of the great works of our God, * O renowned Elias, who, by your word restrained the clouds of rain, * pray for us to the only One Who loves mankind. (Kontakion, Tone 2)
