B:Second Antiphon: - Usual Sunday

C:Third Antiphon: Resurrectional Apolytikion – Tone 6

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.

         

D:Entrance Hymn:

 

The Lord hath made known His salvation; He hath revealed His justice in the sight of the Gentiles.

Save us, O Son of God, Who art risen from the dead; who sing to Thee. Alleluia.

 

E:Troparia

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 for St. Gregory Palamas– Tone 8

 

O Star of Orthodoxy, support of the Church and its teacher, O comeliness of ascetics, and incontestable champion of those who speak in theology, Gregory the wonder-worker, the pride of Thessalonica and preacher of grace, implore thou constantly for the salvation of our souls.

 

Troparion of All Saints of North America – Tone 1

 

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 Theotokos and of all Thy saints, O most Merciful One.

 

F:  Kontakion for Sundays of Great Lent – Tone 8:

 

To thee, the Champion Leader, do I offer thanks of victory, O Theotokos, thou who hast delivered me from terror; but as thou that hast that power invincible, O Theotokos, thou alone can set me free: from all forms of danger free me and deliver me, that I may cry unto thee: Hail, O Bride without Bridegroom.

 

G:Trisagion –Usual Sunday:  (Page 30 in The Divine Liturgy for Clergy and Laity):

 

 

 

EPISTLE:   Hebrews 1:10 - 2:3

 

“In the beginning, Thou, O Lord, didst found the earth, and the heavens are the work of Thy hands; they will perish, but Thou remainest; they will all grow old like a garment, like a mantle Thou wilt roll them up, and they will be changed. But Thou art the same, and Thy years will never end.” But to what angel has He ever said, “Sit at My right hand, until I make Thine enemies a stool for thy feet”? Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to serve, for the sake of those who are to obtain salvation? Therefore, we must pay closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. For if the message, declared by angels, was valid and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard Him.

 

Tone 2

 

   Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia

 

   v. Of thy mercies, O Lord, will I sing forever. (Psalm 88:1)

 

   Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia

 

   v. For thou hast said: Mercy shall be built up forever. (Psalm 88:3)

 

   Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia

 

GOSPEL:   St. Mark 2:1-12

 

At that time, when Jesus returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that He was at home. And many were gathered together, so that there was no longer room for them, not even about the door; and He was preaching the Word to them. And they came, bringing to Jesus a paralytic carried by four men. And when they could not get near Jesus because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Him; and when they had made an opening, they let down the pallet on which the paralytic lay. And when Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Now, some of the scribes were sitting there, reasoning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak thus? It is blasphemy! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” And immediately Jesus, perceiving in His spirit that they thus reasoned within themselves, said to them, “Why do you reason thus in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise, take up your pallet and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins” – He said to the paralytic – “I say to you, rise, take up your pallet and go home.” And he rose, and immediately took up the pallet and went out before them all. So that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”
