Glory to Jesus Christ! + Glory Forever!

Apostle LukeOctober 20, 2019
Nineteenth Sunday After Pentecost


When You descended to death, O Immortal Life, * You slew Hades with the lightning of Your divinity. * And when You raised the dead from the depths of the earth, * all the heavenly Powers cried out: * “O Giver of Life, Christ our God, glory to You!” (Troparion - Tone 2)

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

You arose from the tomb, O All-Powerful Savior, * and, seeing the miracle, Hades was terrified and the dead arose. * At this sight, all creation rejoices with You, * Adam shares in the joy; and the world, O my Savior, praises You forever in song. (Kontakion - Tone 2)

The icon is of the Apostle Luke (October 18th).
