Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!

Protection of the Mother of GodSeptember 27, 2020
Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost

You descended from on high, O Compassionate One. * You accepted burial for three days to free us from our passions. * O Lord, our Life and Resurrection, glory to You! (Troparion - Tone 8)

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 arose from the tomb, * You raised the dead, * You lifted up Adam, * and Eve dances with joy at Your resurrection; * and the ends of the world, * celebrate Your rising from the dead, O Most Merciful One. (Kontakion - Tone 8)

The Church celebrates the Protection of the Mother of God on October 1st.
