A rule of faith are you, and an icon of gentleness, and a teacher of self-control. And to your flock this was evident, by the truth of your life and deeds.

Ιωα ιʹ 1-9

Jn. 10:1-9

Εἶπεν ὁ Κύριος πρὸς τοὺς ἐληλυθότας πρὸς αὐτὸν Ἰουδαίους· Ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ὁ μὴ εἰσερχόμενος διὰ τῆς θύρας εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τῶν προβάτων ἀλλὰ ἀναβαίνων ἀλλαχόθεν ἐκεῖνος κλέπτης ἐστὶν καὶ λῃστής· ὁ δὲ εἰσερχόμενος διὰ τῆς θύρας ποιμήν ἐστιν τῶν προβάτων. Τούτῳ ὁ θυρωρὸς ἀνοίγει, καὶ τὰ πρόβατα τῆς φωνῆς αὐτοῦ ἀκούει, καὶ τὰ ἴδια πρόβατα φωνεῖ κατ' ὄνομα καὶ ἐξάγει αὐτά. Ὅταν τὰ ἴδια πάντα ἐκβάλῃ, ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῶν πορεύεται, καὶ τὰ πρόβατα αὐτῷ ἀκολουθεῖ, ὅτι οἴδασιν τὴν φωνὴν αὐτοῦ· ἀλλοτρίῳ δὲ οὐ μὴ ἀκολουθήσουσιν ἀλλὰ φεύξονται ἀπ' αὐτοῦ, ὅτι οὐκ οἴδασιν τῶν ἀλλοτρίων τὴν φωνήν. Ταύτην τὴν παροιμίαν εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς· ἐκεῖνοι δὲ οὐκ ἔγνωσαν τίνα ἦν ἃ ἐλάλει αὐτοῖς. Εἶπεν οὖν πάλιν ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι ἡ θύρα τῶν προβάτων. Πάντες ὅσοι ἦλθον πρὸ ἐμοῦ κλέπται εἰσὶν καὶ λῃσταί· ἀλλ' οὐκ ἤκουσαν αὐτῶν τὰ πρόβατα. Ἐγώ εἰμι ἡ θύρα· δι' ἐμοῦ ἐάν τις εἰσέλθῃ σωθήσεται καὶ εἰσελεύσεται καὶ ἐξελεύσεται καὶ νομὴν εὑρήσει.

The Lord said to the Jews who had come to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber; but he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the gatekeeper opens; the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers." This figure Jesus used with them, but they did not understand what he was saying to them. So Jesus again said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not heed them. I am the door; if any one enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture." [RSV]

Psalm 50 (51).

Ἐλέησόν με, ὁ Θεός, κατὰ τὸ μέγα ἔλεός σου, καὶ κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῶν οἰκτιρμῶν σου ἐξάλειψον τὸ ἀνόμημά μου. Ἐπὶ πλεῖον πλῦνόν με ἀπὸ τῆς ἀνομίας μου, καὶ απὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας μου καθάρισόν με. Ὅτι τὴν ἀνομίαν μου ἐγὼ γινώσκω, καὶ ἡ ἁμαρτία μου ἐνώπιόν μού ἐστι διὰ παντός. Σοὶ μόνῳ ἥμαρτον καὶ τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιόν σου ἐποίησα, ὅπως ἂν δικαιωθῇς ἐν τοῖς λόγοις σου, καὶ νικήσῃς ἐν τῷ κρίνεσθαί σε. Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἐν ἀνομίαις συνελήφθην, καὶ ἐν ἁμαρτίαις ἐκίσσησέ με ἡ μήτηρ μου. Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἀλήθειαν ἠγάπησας, τὰ ἄδηλα καὶ τὰ κρύφια τῆς σοφίας σου ἐδήλωσάς μοι. Ραντιεῖς με ὑσσώπῳ, καὶ καθαρισθήσομαι, πλυνεῖς με, καὶ ὑπὲρ χιόνα λευκανθήσομαι. Ἀκουτιεῖς μοι ἀγαλλίασιν καὶ εὐφροσύνην· ἀγαλλιάσονται ὀστέα τεταπεινωμένα. Ἀπόστρεψον τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἀπὸ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν μου καὶ πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας μου ἐξάλειψον. Καρδίαν καθαρὰν κτίσον ἐν ἐμοί, ὁ Θεός, καὶ πνεῦμα εὐθὲς ἐγκαίνισον ἐν τοῖς ἐγκάτοις μου. Μὴ ἀποῤῥίψῃς με ἀπὸ τοῦ προσώπου σου καὶ το Πνεῦμά σου τὸ ἅγιον μὴ ἀντανέλῃς ἀπ' ἐμοῦ. Ἀπόδος μοι τὴν ἀγαλλίασιν τοῦ σωτηρίου σου καὶ πνεύματι ἡγεμονικῷ στήριξόν με. Διδάξω ἀνόμους τὰς ὁδούς σου, καὶ ἀσεβεῖς ἐπὶ σὲ ἐπιστρέψουσι. Ρῦσαί με ἐξ αἱμάτων, ὁ Θεός, ὁ Θεὸς τῆς σωτηρίας μου· ἀγαλλιάσεται ἡ γλῶσσά μου τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου. Κύριε, τὰ χείλη μου ἀνοίξεις, καὶ τὸ στόμα μου ἀναγγελεῖ τὴν αἴνεσίν σου. Ὅτι εἰ ἠθέλησας θυσίαν, ἔδωκα ἄν· ὁλοκαυτώματα οὐκ εὐδοκήσεις. Θυσία τῷ Θεῷ πνεῦμα συντετριμμένον, καρδίαν συντετριμμένην καὶ τεταπεινωμένην ὁ Θεὸς οὐκ ἐξουδενώσει. Ἀγάθυνον, Κύριε, ἐν τῇ εὐδοκίᾳ σου τὴν Σιών, καὶ οἰκοδομηθήτω τὰ τείχη Ἱερουσαλήμ. Τότε εὐδοκήσεις θυσίαν δικαιοσύνης, ἀναφορὰν καὶ ὁλοκαυτώματα. Τότε ἀνοίσουσιν ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριόν σου μόσχους.

Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your great mercy; and according to the abundance of Your compassion, blot out my transgression. Wash me thoroughly from my lawlessness and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my lawlessness, and my sin is always before me. Against You only have I sinned and done evil in Your sight; that You may be justified in Your words, and overcome when You are judged. For behold, I was conceived in transgressions, and in sins my mother bore me. Behold, You love truth; You showed me the unknown and secret things of Your wisdom. You shall sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be cleansed; You shall wash me, and I will be made whiter than snow. You shall make me hear joy and gladness; my bones that were humbled shall greatly rejoice. Turn Your face from my sins, and blot out all my transgressions. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with Your guiding Spirit. I will teach transgressors Your ways, and the ungodly shall turn back to You. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue shall greatly rejoice in Your righteousness. O Lord, You shall open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise. For if You desired sacrifice, I would give it; You will not be pleased with whole burnt offerings. A sacrifice to God is a broken spirit, a broken and humbled heart God will not despise. Do good, O Lord, in Your good pleasure to Zion, and let the walls of Jerusalem be built; then You will be pleased with a sacrifice of righteousness, with offerings and whole burnt offerings; then shall they offer young bulls on Your altar.

That revealer of God's ineffable mysteries, the mouthpiece of Christ, yes, the great Apostle Paul, seeing the future long before, described the one who would be worthy of the episcopal see of the Queen of cities. For he said, "It was fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, blameless, unstained, separated from sinners, and united in spirit to the celestial hosts on high, who with confidence enters the Holy of Holies, and ever draws near to the throne of grace, asking that mercy be given us, that we may find grace to help in time of need." So, duty-bound let us sing his praise, as one who has clearly had the grace from God, and let us extol him unison. [SD]

Ἀναλαβὼν τοῦ Χριστοῦ τὴν πανοπλίαν, καὶ περιζωσάμενος τὴν σὴν ὀσφὺν κραταιῶς, ἐν ἀληθείας εὐθύτητι, δικαιοσύνης, θεῖον δὲ θώρακα ἐνδυσάμενος, καὶ ὑποδυσάμενος ὡραίους πόδας σου, Εὐαγγελίου τῆς χάριτος, ἑτοιμασίᾳ, καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶσι θυρεὸν πίστεως, καὶ τὴν τοῦ Πνεύματος θείαν μάχαιραν, ῥῆμα Θεοῦ ὦ Μητρόφανες, τοῦ ἐχθροῦ τὰ πυρφόρα, παντελῶς βέλη κατέσβεσας.

When you had taken the whole armor of Christ God, * as Paul the Apostle said, mightily girding your loins * with the uprightness of godly truth, and when you put on * the divine breastplate of righteousness, O Saint, * and with the equipment of the Gospel of His grace * you shod your feet, which were beautiful, preacher of good news, * moreover taking the sturdy shield of faith, * O Metrophanis, and the godly sword * of the Spirit, the life-giving word of God, * then you quenched all the flaming * darts and arrows of the evil one. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ἤχῳ σάλπιγγος, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ψαλτηρίῳ καὶ κιθάρᾳ.

Praise Him with the sound of trumpet; praise Him with the harp and lyre. [SAAS]

Ξενοπρεπῶς σου τὸν βίον διανύσας, τὸν ξένον γενόμενον, Χριστὸν μιμούμενος, δι' εὐσπλαγχνίαν ἀμέτρητον, ξένων χαρίτων, κατηξιώθης Πάτερ Μητρόφανες, ξένοις καὶ αὐτόχθοσι, σαφῶς τὰ μέλλοντα, προαγορεύων ὡς ἔνθεος, νέος Προφήτης, ἐν γηραλέῳ ψυχῆς φρονήματι· ὅθεν τῆς κρείττονος θείας ἔτυχες, κατ' ἀξίαν ξενίας ἀοίδιμε, ἱκετεύων σωθῆναι, τοὺς ἐν πίστει ἀνυμνοῦντάς σε.

You led your life in the world like a stranger, * imitating Christ who was a stranger for our sake, * in His immeasurable tender love; and you were granted * strange and remarkable gifts of grace divine. * Father Metrophanis, as a Prophet God-inspired, * you told the future to foreigners and natives clearly, * showing your soul's spiritual maturity. * Therefore you worthily received on high * the divine hospitality of the Lord, * whom you pray now to save us, * who are faithfully extolling you. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν τυμπάνῳ καὶ χορῷ, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν χορδαῖς καὶ ὀργάνῳ.

Praise Him with timbrel and dance; praise Him with strings and flute. [SAAS]

Ὁ ἐπαξίως κομήτης Κωνσταντῖνος, ὥσπερ ἑσπερώτατος, προσκληθεὶς ἄνωθεν, τῶν χριστωνύμων ὁ πρώτιστος, Ἄναξ ἀνάκτων, σὲ ἐξ ἑῴας ἐξανατείλαντα, ἄλλον ὥσπερ ἥλιον, εὑρὼν Μητρόφανες, συναγαγὼν ὡς ἀείφωτον, χορὸν ἀστέρων, θείων Πατέρων τὸ πρῶτον ἄθροισμα, ἐν ὑψιθρόνῳ στερεώματι, Ἐκκλησίας Χριστοῦ ἐνεθρόνισε, καταυγάζειν ἀκτῖσιν, εὐσεβείας τὸ ἀνθρώπινον.

Emperor Constantine worthily was summoned * by providence like a comet coming from the west. * He was the first of the Christian kings and pious rulers. * O Metrophanis, when he discovered you, * O Saint, like a sun that had arisen from the east, * and he convened, like a host of stars that shine forever, * the holy Fathers in what would be the First * Council, he set you on the highest throne, * like a sun in the sky of the Church of Christ, * so that rays of your dogmas * might illumine all humanity. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις εὐήχοις, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις ἀλαλαγμοῦ. Πᾶσα πνοὴ αἰνεσάτω τὸν Κύριον.

Praise Him with resounding cymbals; praise Him with triumphant cymbals; let everything that breathes praise the Lord. [SAAS]

Ὑπερουράνιον ἄρτον προσκομίζων, θυσίαν ἀναίμακτον τῷ Παντοκράτορι, σαυτὸν ὡς θῦμα εὐπρόσδεκτον, ὡς Ἱεράρχης, μάκαρ προσῆξας καὶ καλλιέρημα, ὅθεν καὶ ὠσφράνθη σου τοῦ θυμιάματος, ὀσμὴν καὶ μύρον ἡδύπνοον, τὴν εὐωδίαν, τῶν ἀρετῶν τε καὶ θείων πράξεων· καὶ νῦν τῷ θρόνῳ παριστάμενος, τοῦ Σωτῆρος θυσίαν ἀναίμακτον, παῤῥησίᾳ προσφέρεις, καὶ φωτίζεις τοὺς ὑμνοῦντάς σε.

You brought the Bread that is higher than the heavens, * the offering that is bloodless, to the Ruler of all, * and as a bishop offered yourself, O Metrophanis, * as an acceptable sacrifice to God. * Hence, He smelled your incense, which was spiritually sweet; * it breathed of spices and sweet perfume, the pleasant fragrance * of all your virtues and godly words and deeds. * Now you are standing near the Savior's throne, * and with confidence offer the sacrifice * that is bloodless, O Father, * and illumine us who sing your praise. [SD]

Μητρὸς παμφαοῦς, ὦ Μητρόφανες σοφέ, τῆς Ἐκκλησίας Χριστοῦ, Πατὴρ θεοπρόβλητος ἀνεδείχθης, καὶ νύμφης ἐκλεκτῆς τοῦ Βασιλέως τῶν οὐρανῶν, νυμφίος σεμνοπρεπὴς μυστικῶς ἐχρημάτισας, υἱοὺς ἀπείρους προσάγων τῷ ἀοράτῳ Πατρὶ διὰ πίστεως, πολύτεκνον τὴν κολυμβήθραν, ἐν Πνεύματι Ἁγίῳ ἀπεργασάμενος. Ὅθεν τὸ δοθέν σοι τάλαντον πολύπλασιάσας, χαίρων εἰσῆλθες εἰς τὸν νυμφῶνα τὸν οὐράνιον, τῶν πρωτοτόκων ταῖς χορείαις συνηδόμενος, καὶ πρεσβεύων ὑπὲρ τῶν ψυχῶν ἡμῶν.

O wise Metrophanes, you were shown to be a God-chosen Father, the Church of Christ being our illustrious Mother. Mystically you became the noble bridegroom of the chosen bride of the King of heaven. By the Holy Spirit, you begot countless children in the baptismal font, and you led them through faith to the unseen Father. Thus you multiplied the talent that was given to you, and rejoicing you entered the heavenly bridal hall, where you celebrate with the hosts of the first-born saints, and you intercede on behalf of our souls.

Ἀνελήφθης ἐν δόξῃ, ἀπὸ γῆς εἰς οὐρανούς, ὁ πάντα πληρῶν τῇ Θεότητι· καὶ ἐν δεξιᾷ Πατρὸς ἐκάθισας, ὁ ἐν ἀρχῇ Θεὸς Λόγος· ὅθεν αἱ οὐράνιαι Δυνάμεις ὁρῶσαι, τοῖς Ἀποστόλοις ἔμφοβοι ἔλεγον· Τίνι ἀτενίζετε βλέποντες εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν; οὗτος, ὃν ἐθεάσασθε, αὐτὸς πάλιν ἐλεύσεται μετὰ δόξης, τοῦ κρῖναι πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν, καὶ ἀποδοῦναι ἑκάστῳ κατὰ τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ. Πρὸς ὃν βοήσωμεν· Ἀκατάληπτε Κύριε, δόξα σοι.

You ascended in glory from earth into heaven, You who in Divinity fill all things; and You sat at the right hand of the Father, You who are in the beginning God the Logos. The heavenly hosts saw this, and in awe they said to the Apostles, "Do You know whom you are staring at, looking into heaven? The One whom you saw will come again in glory, to judge all the earth, and to reward each person according to their deeds." Let us cry out to Him, "O incomprehensible Lord, glory to You!" [SD]
