Feast of the Transfiguration of Christ

(Celebrated in Anticipation of Aug. 6 with the

Blessing of His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH)

 

Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom

 

Troparion of the Transfiguration – Tone 7:

 

Thou didst shatter death by Thy Cross, Thou didst open paradise to the thief; Thou didst turn the sadness of the ointment-bearing women into joy. And didst bid Thine Apostles proclaim a warning, that Thou hast risen O Christ, granting to the world the Great Mercy.

 

Troparion of All Saints of North America – Tone 1:   NOT SUNG TODAY

 

Kontakion for Transfiguration – Tone 7:

 

Thou wast transfigured on the mount, and Thy Disciples, in so far as they were able, beheld Thy glory, O Christ our God; so that, when they should see Thee crucified, they would remember that all Thy suffering was voluntary, and could declare to all the world that Thou art truly the effulgent Splendor of the Father.

 

 

EPISTLE:   1 Peter 1:10-19

 

Brethren, be the more zealous to confirm your call and election, for if you do this you will never fall; so there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Therefore, I intend always to remind you of these things, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have. I think it right, as long as I am in this body, to arouse you by way of reminder, since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our Lord Jesus Christ showed me. And I will see to it that after my departure you may be able at any time to recall these things. For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For when He received honor and glory from God the Father and the voice was borne to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is My beloved Son, with Whom I am well pleased,” we heard this voice borne from heaven, for we were with Him on the holy mountain. And we have the prophetic word made surer. You will do well to pay attention to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

 

 

GOSPEL:   Matthew 17:1-9

 

At that time, Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart. And He was transfigured before them, and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as light. And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with Him. And Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is well that we are here; if Thou wilt, I will make three booths here, one for Thee and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” He was still speaking, when lo, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is My beloved Son, with Whom I am well pleased; hear Him.” When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces, and were filled with awe. But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and have no fear.” And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only. And as they were coming down the mountain, Jesus commanded them, “Tell no one the vision, until the Son of man is risen from the dead.”

 

Megalynarion of the Transfiguration – Tone 8:

 

Now hath been heard that which hath never been heard before; for the Son, Who is from the Virgin without father, hath been testified to in glory by the voice of the Father; for He Himself is God and Man together unto the end of the ages.

CHARITABLE GIVING FOR AUGUST:

PLT (Parents Learning Together) and  CKF (Capable Kids and Families) is a not-for-profit agency that supports families and children with developmental delays and developmental disabilities.  A lot of the items have already been purchased; however, if anyone is willing to pick up dry erase markers and Kleenex (small packets), that would be great.  Please deliver them to church no later than Sunday, 8/5/2018.  That is the day that we will be assembling all the backpacks, and we will need help after Divine Liturgy to accomplish this.  Join us August 8th to put together backpacks with school supplies for the PLT and CPK programs of St Louis ARC.  Delivery must be by Wednesday 08/08/2018. Thank you for your support of this charity.  See Norma Wakefield or Sheri Walsh for more information.
