Gregory the wonderworker, bishop of Neo-Caesarea; Gennadios and Maximos, patriarchs of Constantinople; Nikon the wonderworker, disciple of Sergios of Radonezh; Hilda, abbess of Whitby

 

Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom

 

Troparion of the Resurrection – Tone 5:   See Page 97 in The Divine Liturgy for Clergy and Laity:

 

Let us believers praise and worship the Word; coeternal with the Father and the Spirit, born of the Virgin for our salvation. For, He took pleasure in ascending the Cross in the flesh to suffer death; and to raise the dead by His glorious Resurrection.

 

Troparion of St. Gregory the Wonderworker of Neo-Caesarea – Tone 8:

 

By vigilance in prayer, and coerntinuance in the working of wonders, thou didst acquire thine achievements as a surname; whefore, intercede with Christ our God, O Father Gregory, to enlighten our souls, lest we sleep in sin unto 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 Entrance of the Theotokos – Tone 4:

 

The sacred treasury of God’s holy glory, the greatly precious bridal chamber and Virgin, the Savior’s most pure temple, free of stain and undefiled, into the House of the Lord on this day is brought forward and bringeth with herself the grace of the Most Divine Spirit; her do God’s Angels hymn with songs of praise, for she is truly the heavenly tabernacle.

 

 

EPISTLE:   Galatians 6:11-18

 

Brethren, see with what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand.  It is those who want to make a good showing in the flesh that would compel you to be circumcised and only in order that they may not be persecuted for the cross of Christ.  For even those who receive circumcision do not themselves keep the Law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may glory in your flesh.  But far be it from me to glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me and I to the world.  For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation.  Peace and mercy be upon all, who walk by this rule, upon the Israel of God.  Henceforth let no man trouble me; for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brethren.  Amen.

 

 

GOSPEL:   St. Luke 12:16-21

 

The Lord spoke this parable: “The land of a rich man brought forth plentifully; and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’  And he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns, and build larger ones; and there I will store all my grain and my goods.  And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.’  But God said to him, ‘Fool!  This night your soul is required of you; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’  So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”  As He said this, Jesus called out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

 

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.
