Fourth Week of Pascha. Tone three.
The Scripture ReadingsJohn 21:15-25 Matins Gospel
St. John the Theologian, Troparion, Tone II —
O beloved apostle of Christ God,/ haste thou to deliver a defenseless people./ He Who permitted thee to recline against His breast/ receiveth thee, prostrate in supplication./ Him do thou beseech, O theologian,/ that He dispel the gloom of the nations which doth beset us,// asking for us peace and great mercy.
Kontakion to St. Arsenius, Tone III: "Today the Virgin..." —
From Rome thou didst shine forth like the great sun,/ and thou didst reach the imperial city, O all-blessed one,/ illumining it with thy words and deeds/ and dispelling all the darkness of ignorance.// Wherefore, we honor thee, O venerable Arsenius, thou glory of the fathers.
Kontakion of the Apostle, Tone II —
Who can recount thy mighty works, O virgin apostle?/ For thou pourest out miracles/ and dost cause healings to flow forth;/ and thou prayest for our souls,// in that thou art a theologian and the friend of Christ.
