Divine Liturgy of St. Basil the Great

 

Troparion of the Resurrection – Tone 1:   See Page 91 in The Divine Liturgy for Clergy and Laity:

 

While the stone was sealed by the Jews, and the soldiers were guarding Thy most pure body, Thou didst arise on the third day, O Savior, granting life to the world. For which cause the heavenly powers cried aloud unto Thee, O giver of life. Glory to Thy Resurrection O Christ, glory to Thy kingdom, glory to Thy providence, O Thou Who alone art the lover of mankind.

 

Troparion for the First Sunday of Great Lent – Tone 2:

 

Thy pure image do we venerate, O good One, asking forgiveness of our sins, O Christ our God; for by Thine own will Thou didst ascend the Cross in Thy body, to save Thy creatures from the bondage of the enemy. Thou hast verily filled all with joy, since Thou didst come, O our Savior, to save the world.

 

Troparion of All Saints of North America – Tone 1:   See Page 26, in The Divine Liturgy for Clergy and Laity:

 

The first fruits of sanctity, sown in this new land, we offer to Thee our Father in heaven.  The blessed ascetic Herman of Alaska and Holy Hierarch Innocent, Apostle to America, together with the Martyrs the Priest Juvenaly and the Aleut Peter, and the unknow holy men women who did witness to Thy name in America.  Fill Thy Church with Heavenly joy.  Grant peace to our land and sanctify all those who worship Thee through the prayers of the Theotokos and of all Thy saints O most Merciful One.

 

Kontakion for Lent – Tone 8:

 

To thee, the Champion Leader, do I offer thanks of victory, O Theotokos, thou who hast delivered me from terror; but as thou that hast that power invincible, O Theotokos, thou alone can set me free: from all forms of danger free me and deliver me, that I may cry unto thee: Hail, O Bride without Bridegroom.

 

 

EPISTLE:   Hebrews 11:24-26, 32-40

 

Brethren, by faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to share ill-treatment with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. And what more shall I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets; who through faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, received promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched raging fire, escaped the edge of the sword, won strength out of weakness, became mighty in war, and put foreign armies to flight. Women received their dead by resurrection. Some were tortured, refusing to accept release that they might rise again to a better life. Others suffered mocking and scourging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were killed with the sword; they went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, ill-treated—of whom the world was not worthy—wandering over deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And all these, though well attested by their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had foreseen something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.

 

 

GOSPEL:   St. John 1:43-51

 

At that time, Jesus decided to go to Galilee. And He found Philip and said to him, “Follow Me.”  Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, “We have found Him of Whom Moses in the Law and also the Prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” Jesus saw Nathanael coming to Him, and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!” Nathanael said to Jesus, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” Nathanael answered Him, “Rabbi, Thou art the Son of God! Thou art the King of Israel!” Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these.” And Jesus said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”

 

Megalynarion of St. John Chrysostom’s Liturgy – Tone 8:   “It is truly meet…”  See Page 55 in The Divine Liturgy for Clergy and Laity:

 

It is truly meet and right to bless thee, O Theotokos, who art ever blessed and all blameless and the Mother of our God.  More hon’rable than the Cherubim and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim:  Thou who without stain barest God the Word, and art truly Theotokos, we magnify thee.
