Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom

 

Troparion of the Resurrection – Tone 6:   See Page 99 in The Divine Liturgy for Clergy and Laity:

When Mary stood at Thy grave, looking for Thy sacred body, angelic powers shone above Thy revered tomb; and the soldiers who were to keep guard became as dead men. Thou led Hades captive and wast not tempted thereby. Thou didst meet the Virgin and didst give life to the world, O Thou, Who art risen from the dead, O Lord, glory to Thee.

 

Troparion of the Holy Cross – Tone 1:   See Page 97 in The Divine Liturgy for Clergy and Laity:

 

O Lord, save Thy people and bless Thine inheritance, granting to Thy people victory over all their enemies, and by the power of Thy Cross preserving Thy commonwealth.

 

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 of the Elevation of the Holy Cross – Tone 4:

 

Do Thou, Who of Thine own good will was lifted up upon the Cross, O Christ our God, bestow Thy bounties upon the new Nation which is called by Thy Name; make glad in Thy might those who lawfully govern, that with them we may be led to victory over our adversaries, having in Thine aid a weapon of peace and a trophy invincible.

 

 

 

EPISTLE:  Galatians 2:16-20

 

Brethren, you know that a man is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ.  Even we have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ, and not by works of the law, because by works of the law shall no one be justified.  But if, in our endeavor to be justified in Christ, we ourselves were found to be sinners, is Christ then an agent of sin?  Certainly not!  But if I build up again those things which I tore down, then I prove myself a transgressor.  For I through the Law died to the Law, that I might live to God.  I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ Who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me.

 

 

GOSPEL: Mark 8:34 – 9:1

 

The Lord said, “If any man would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.  For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for My sake and the Gospel’s will save it.  For what does it profit a man, to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?  For what can a man give in return for his soul?  For whoever is ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of man also be ashamed, when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”  And He said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the Kingdom of God come with power.”
