Sunday before the Elevation of the Cross – Tone 6

Great-martyr Severian of Sebastia; Holy Fathers of the Third Ecumenical Council

 

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 Nativity of the Theotokos – Tone 4:

 

Thy nativity, O Theotokos, hath proclaimed joy to the whole universe; for from thee did shine forth the Sun of justice, Christ our God, annulling the curse, and bestowing the blessing, abolishing death and granting us life everlasting.

 

Troparion of Sts. Joachim and Anna – Tone 2:

 

As we celebrate the remembrance of Thy righteous Ancestors, O Lord our God, through them we beseech Thee to save our souls.

 

Troparion of All Saints of North America – Tone 1:   See Page 26 in The Divine Liturgy for Clergy and Laity.

 

Kontakion of the Nativity of the Theotokos Tone 4:

 

By thy holy nativity, O pure one, Joachim and Anna were delivered from the reproach of barrenness; and Adam and Eve were delivered from the corruption of death; thy people do celebrate it, having been saved from the stain of iniquity, crying unto thee: The barren doth give birth to the Theotokos, who nourisheth our life.

 

 

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:   John 3:13-17

 

The Lord said, “No one has ascended into heaven but He who descended from heaven, the Son of man.  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God sent His Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.”

 

Megalynarion of St. John Chrysostom’s Liturgy Tone 8:  “It is truly meet…”  See Page 55 in The Divine Liturgy for Clergy and Laity.
