Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!

Theophany of ChristJanuary 16, 2022
Thirty-Fourth Sunday After Pentecost

Though the stone had been sealed by the Jews, * and the soldiers were guarding Your most pure body, * You, O Savior arose on the third day granting life to the world. * Therefore, the heavenly Powers cried out to You, O Giver of Life: * "Glory to Your Resurrection, O Christ! * Glory to Your Kingdom! * Glory to Your divine plan! * O You, Who alone loves mankind!" (Troparion - Tone 1)

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

As God, You arose in glory from the tomb, raising the world with You. * Mankind praises You as God; death has vanished. * Adam dances with joy, O Master. * Eve, now freed from bondage, rejoices as she cries out: * “O Christ, it is You who gives resurrection to all!” (Kontakion - Tone 1)

The icon is detail of the Theophany of Our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
