Troparion (Tone 7):
By Your cross You destroyed death; You opened Paradise to the thief; You changed the lamentation of the myrrh-bearers to joy, and charged the apostles to proclaim that You are risen, O Christ our God, offering great mercy to the world.

Troparion (Tone 7): You were transfigured on the mount, O Christ God, showing Your glory to Your disciples as much as they could bear. Make Your eternal light shine also on us who are sinners, through the prayers of the Mother of God, O Giver of Light, glory to You!

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Kontakion (Tone 7): No longer shall the dominion of death be able to hold humanity, for Christ went down shattering and destroying its powers. Hades is bound. The prophets exult with one voice. The Savior has come for those with faith, saying: “Come forth, O faithful, to the resurrection!”

Now and for ever and ever. Amen.

Kontakion (Tone 7): You were transfigured on the mount, O Christ God, and Your disciples saw Your glory as much as they could; that when they saw You crucified they might know that You suffered willingly, and might proclaim to the world that You are truly the brightness of the Father.


Prokimenon (Tone 7):
The Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace (Ps 28:11).

verse: Bring to the Lord, O you sons of God; bring to the Lord young rams (Ps 28:1).

Prokimenon (Tone 4): How great are Your works, O Lord; You have made all things in wisdom (Ps 103:24).


Epistle:
(1Co 1:10-18) (Sunday)
Brethren, I appeal to you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree and that there be no dissensions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. For it has been reported to me by Chloe’s people that there is quarreling among you, my brethren. What I mean is that each one of you says, “I belong to Paul,” or “I belong to Apollos,” or “I belong to Cephas,” or “I belong to Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I am thankful  that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius; lest any one should say that you were baptized in my name. (I did baptize also the household of Stephanas. Beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized any one else.) For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

Alleluia (Tone 7): It is good to give praise to the Lord; and to sing in Your name, O Most High (Ps 91:2).

verse: To announce Your mercy in the morning and Your truth every night (Ps 91:3).

Alleluia: Yours are the heavens, and Yours are the earth (Ps 88:12).

Gospel: (Mt 9:1-8) (Sunday)
As he went ashore he saw a great throng; and he had compassion on them, and healed their sick. When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a lonely place, and the day is now over; send the crowds away to go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” Jesus said, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.”  They said to him, “We have only five loaves here and two fish.” And he said, “Bring them here to me.” Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass; and taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children. Then he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds.


Instead of
“It is truly…”: O my soul, magnify the Lord transfigured on the mountain.

Irmos (Tone 4): Your giving birth was revealed as incorrupt; for it was God who came forth from your womb; He appeared on earth in the flesh, and made His dwelling among us. Thus, O Mother of God, all of us magnify you.


Communion Verse:
Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise Him in the highest (Ps 148:1).

Second: We will walk in the light of Your face, O Lord, and rejoice in Your name forever (Ps 88:16-17). Alleluia! (3x)
