After-feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos – Tone 8

 

Martyrs Floros and Lauros of Illyria; Venerable Sophronios of St. Anne Skete on Athos

 

Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom

 

Troparion of the Resurrection – Tone 8:   See Page 102 in The Divine Liturgy for Clergy and Laity:

 

From the heights Thou didst descend, O compassionate One, and Thou didst submit to the three-day burial, that Thou might deliver us from passion; Thou art our life and our Resurrection, O Lord, glory to Thee.

 

Troparion of the Dormition – Tone 1:

 

In thy birth-giving, O Theotokos, thou didst keep and preserve virginity; and in thy falling-asleep thou hast not forsaken the world; for thou wast translated into life, being the Mother of Life. Wherefore, by thine intercessions, deliver our souls from death.

 

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 of the Dormition – Tone 2:

 

Verily, the Theotokos, who is ever watchful in intercessions, and whose prayers are never rejected, neither tomb nor death could control. But since she is the Mother of Life, He Who dwelt in her ever-virgin womb did translate her to life.

 

 

EPISTLE:   1 Corinthians 3:9-17

 

Brethren, we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building. According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and another man is building upon it. Let each man take care how he builds upon it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any one builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay or straw, each man’s work will become manifest; for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. If the work which any man has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If any man’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire. Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.

 

 

GOSPEL:   St. Matthew 14:22-34

 

At that time, Jesus made the Disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He dismissed the crowds. And after He had dismissed the crowds, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. When evening came, He was there alone, but the Disciples’ boat by this time was many furlongs distant from the land, beaten by the waves; for the wind was against them. And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. But when the Disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. But immediately He spoke to them, saying, “Take heart, it is I; have no fear.” And Peter answered Him, “Lord, if it is Thee, bid me come to Thee on the water.” He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus; but when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Jesus immediately reached out His hand and caught him, saying to him, “O man of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “Truly, Thou art the Son of God.” And when they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret.

 

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.
