The Scripture Readings

Acts 5:1-11
John 5:30-6:2


Holy Prophet Jeremiah, Troparion, Tone II —
Celebrating the memory/ of Thy prophet Jeremiah O Lord,// through him do we entreat Thee, save Thou our souls.

Kontakion, Tone III: ''Today the Virgin..." —
Having cleansed thy radiant heart with the Spirit,/ O glorious Jeremiah, great prophet and martyr,/ thou didst receive from on high the gift of prophecy/ and didst cry aloud among the lands: "Behold our God!// There is none other to compare with Him, Who hath appeared, incarnate, on the earth!"

Martyrs Euthymius, Ignatius, and Acacius, Troparion, in Tone I —
Equal in number with the uncreated Trin­ity, O wise ones,/ with the choirs of angels and the ranks of martyrs/ ye stand, rejoicing, before the throne of the Godhead;/ wherefore, receiving effulgence from thence through communion,/ ye impart to the faithful a well-spring of healings/ and divine enlightenment./ O Euphemius, mar­tyr of Christ,/ wise Ignatius and godly Acacius,// pray ye ever in our behalf.

Kontakion, in Tone IV —
The new celebration of the three passion-bearers hath today been shown forth to the Church, illumining the fullness of the Orthodox like beacons, O Christ.

St. Tamara, queen of Georgia, Troparion, in Tone I —
Having served the King of kings diligently , on earth, O Tamara,/ queen of great renown,/ thou didst enter with honor into the heavenly Jerusalem/ and didst bring to Christ thy glory as a gift;/ wherefore, celebrating and joining cho­rus today,/ with joy we unceasingly cry:/ Glory to Him Who hath given thee glory!/ Glory to Him Who hath crowned thee!// Glory to Him Who granteth unto all the fullness of forgiveness by thine intercession!

Kontakion, in Tone IV —
Make ready, O thou heavenly Jerusalem!/ Open thy gates, O Eden!/ Join chorus together, ye choirs of the righteous!/ Ye people of Iberia keep festival!/ And thou, O holy Nina, greet thou the glorious Tamara/ who arriveth today in the kingdom of heaven// to be crowned by the hand of God!
