Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom

 

Troparion of the Resurrection – Tone 7:   See Page 101 in The Divine Liturgy for Clergy and Laity:

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 the Theophany of Christ – Tone 1:

When Thou, O Lord, wast baptized in the Jordan, worship of the Trinity wast made manifest; for the voice of the Father bore witness to Thee, calling Thee His beloved Son. And the Spirit in the likeness of a dove confirmed the truth of His word. O Christ our God, Who hath appeared and enlightened the world, glory to Thee.

 

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 unknown holy men and 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 Theotoko and of all Thy saints O most Merciful One.

 

Kontakion for the Theophany of Christ – Tone 4:

On this day Thou hast appeared unto the whole world, and Thy light, O Sovereign Lord, is signed on us who sing Thy praise and chant with knowledge: Thou hast now come, Thou hast appeared, O Thou Light unapproachable.

 

 

EPISTLE:  Ephesians 4:7-13

 

Brethren, grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.  Therefore, it is said, “When He ascended on high He led a host of captives, and He gave gifts to men.”  (In saying, “He ascended,” what does it mean but that He had also descended into the lower parts of the earth?  He who descended is He who also ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.)  And His gifts were that some should be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

 

 

GOSPEL:  Matthew 4:12-17

 

At that time, when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth he went and dwelt in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulon and Naphtali, so that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: “The land of Zebulon and the land of Naphtali, toward the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned.” From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”

 

Megalynarion of the Leave-taking of the Theophany – Tone 2:

 

Magnify, O my soul, the Maiden who delivered us from the curse.

 

O the wonder of thy super-intelligent birth-giving, thou all-pure bride, the blessed Mother through whom we have received perfect salvation, we compose a fitting song, offering as a gift the song of gratitude.
