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!

Entrance Verse (Soloist): Lord, send forth Your light and Your truth, these have guided and led me to Your holy mountain (Ps 42:3).

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

verse: Bless the Lord, O my soul; O Lord my God, You are exceedingly great(Ps 103:1).

Epistle: (2 Peter 1:10-19): Brethren, be all the more eager to confirm your call and election, for if you do this, you will never stumble. For in this way, entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will be richly provided for you. Therefore I intend to keep on reminding you of these things, though you know them already and are established in the truth that has come to you. I think it right, as long as I am in this body, to refresh your memory, since I know that my death will come soon, as indeed our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. And I will make every effort so that after my departure you may be able at any time to recall these things. For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received honour and glory from God the Father when that voice was conveyed to him by the Majestic Glory, saying, ‘This is my Son, my Beloved, with whom I am well pleased.’ We ourselves heard this voice come from heaven, while we were with him on the holy mountain. So we have the prophetic message more fully confirmed. You will do well to be attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

Alleluia (Tone 8):
verse: Yours are the heavens, and Yours are the earth (Ps 88:12).
verse: Blessed are the people who know the festal shout, they will walk in the light of Your countenance, O Lord (Ps 88:16).

Gospel: (Matthew 17:1-9): At that time, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became dazzling white. Suddenly there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him. Then Peter said to Jesus, ‘Lord, it is good for us to be here; if you wish, I will make three dwellings here, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.’ While he was still speaking, suddenly a bright cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud a voice said, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; with him I am well pleased; listen to him!’ When the disciples heard this, they fell to the ground and were overcome by fear. But Jesus came and touched them, saying, ‘Get up and do not be afraid.’ And when they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus himself alone. As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus ordered them, ‘Tell no one about the vision until after the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.’

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