With the sacred blood of martyrdom, the Athletes * of Christ dyed the royal purple robe; and the King of hosts * as God has made them worthy * to reign with Him forevermore on high. * And they pray Him that our offences be forgiven us, * who each day extol and worthily honor them. [SD]

Τρισυπόστατον πιστοί, μίαν Θεότητα, ὑμνοῦντες εὐσεβῶς, Πατέρα, Λόγον, σὺν Πνεύματι, τῷ Παρακλήτῳ πάντες, ἀγγελικαῖς βοήσωμεν φωναῖς, ἀσιγήτως· Ἅγιος, ἅγιος, ἅγιος εἶ ὁ Θεός, σῶσον τὰς ψυχὰς ἡμῶν.

O believers, as we laud the single Godhead * in three hypostases, the Father, Logos, and Paraclete, * that is the Holy Spirit, * with never-ceasing voices let us shout, * "Holy, holy, holy are You, O God," * the angelic hymn; and pray, "Holy Trinity, save our souls." [SD]

MONDAY OF THE FIFTH WEEK

Προκείμενον. Ἦχος δʹ. Ψαλμὸς 103.

Prokeimenon. Mode 4. Psalm 103.

Ὁ ποιῶν τοὺς ἀγγέλους αὐτοῦ πνεύματα καὶ τοὺς λειτουργοὺς αὐτοῦ πυρὸς φλόγα.

He makes His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire. [SAAS]

Στίχ. Εὐλόγει, ἡ ψυχή μου, τὸν Κύριον. Κύριε ὁ Θεός μου, ἐμεγαλύνθης σφόδρα.

Verse: Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, You are magnified exceedingly. [SAAS]

Ρω 12:4-5, 15-21

Rom. 12:4-5, 15-21

Ἀδελφοί, καθάπερ γὰρ ἐν ἑνὶ σώματι πολλὰ μέλη ἔχομεν͵ τὰ δὲ μέλη πάντα οὐ τὴν αὐτὴν ἔχει πρᾶξιν· οὕτως οἱ πολλοὶ ἓν σῶμά ἐσμεν ἐν Χριστῷ͵ ὁ δὲ κάθεὶς ἀλλήλων μέλη. Χαίρειν μετὰ χαιρόντων͵ κλαίειν μετὰ κλαιόντων. Τὸ αὐτὸ εἰς ἀλλήλους φρονοῦντες͵ μὴ τὰ ὑψηλὰ φρονοῦντες ἀλλὰ τοῖς ταπεινοῖς συναπαγόμενοι. Μὴ γίνεσθε φρόνιμοι παρ' ἑαυτοῖς. Μηδενὶ κακὸν ἀντὶ κακοῦ ἀποδιδόντες· προνοούμενοι καλὰ ἐνώπιον πάντων ἀνθρώπων· εἰ δυνατόν͵ τὸ ἐξ ὑμῶν μετὰ πάντων ἀνθρώπων εἰρηνεύοντες· μὴ ἑαυτοὺς ἐκδικοῦντες͵ ἀγαπητοί͵ ἀλλὰ δότε τόπον τῇ ὀργῇ· γέγραπται γάρ· Ἐμοὶ ἐκδίκησις͵ ἐγὼ ἀνταποδώσω͵ λέγει Κύριος. Ἀλλὰ ἐὰν πεινᾷ ὁ ἐχθρός σου͵ ψώμιζε αὐτόν· ἐὰν διψᾷ͵ πότιζε αὐτόν· τοῦτο γὰρ ποιῶν ἄνθρακας πυρὸς σωρεύσεις ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ. Μὴ νικῶ ὑπὸ τοῦ κακοῦ͵ ἀλλὰ νίκα ἐν τῷ ἀγαθῷ τὸ κακόν.

Brethren, for as in one body we have many members, and all the members do not have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly; never be conceited. Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends upon you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God; for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord." No, "if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. [RSV]

Τῌ ΔΕΥΤΕΡᾼ ΤΗΣ Εʹ ΕΒΔΟΜΑΔΟΣ ΤΟΥ ΜΑΤΘΑΙΟΥ

Monday of the Fifth Week of Matthew

Ματ ιβʹ 9 - 13

Mt. 12:9-13

Τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἦλθεν ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἰς τὴν συναγωγὴν τῶν Ἰουδαίων. Καὶ ἰδοὺ ἄνθρωπος ἦν ἐκεῖ τὴν χεῖρα ἔχων ξηράν· καὶ ἐπηρώτησαν αὐτὸν λέγοντες· Εἰ ἔξεστι τοῖς σάββασι θεραπεύειν; ἵνα κατηγορήσωσιν αὐτοῦ. ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· Τίς ἔσται ἐξ ὑμῶν ἄνθρωπος ὃς ἕξει πρόβατον ἕν, καὶ ἐὰν ἐμπέσῃ τοῦτο τοῖς σάββασιν εἰς βόθυνον, οὐχὶ κρατήσει αὐτὸ καὶ ἐγερεῖ; πόσῳ οὖν διαφέρει ἄνθρωπος προβάτου; ὥστε ἔξεστι τοῖς σάββασι καλῶς ποιεῖν. τότε λέγει τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ· Ἔκτεινόν σου τὴν χεῖρα· καὶ ἐξέτεινε, καὶ ἀποκατεστάθη ὑγιὴς ὡς ἡ ἄλλη.

At that time, Jesus went on from there, and entered their synagogue. And behold, there was a man with a withered hand. And they asked him, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?" so that they might accuse him. He said to them, "What man of you, if he has one sheep and it falls into a pit on the sabbath, will not lay hold of it and lift it out? Of how much more value is a man than a sheep! So it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath." Then he said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." And the man stretched it out, and it was restored, whole like the other. [RSV]

   

   

Ὕμνος εἰς τὴν Θεοτόκον.

Hymn to the Theotokos.

Ἄξιόν ἐστιν ὡς ἀληθῶς μακαρίζειν σε τὴν Θεοτόκον, τὴν ἀειμακάριστον καὶ παναμώμητον καὶ μητέρα τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν. Τὴν τιμιωτέραν τῶν Χερουβεὶμ καὶ ἐνδοξοτέραν ἀσυγκρίτως τῶν Σεραφείμ, τὴν ἀδιαφθόρως Θεὸν Λόγον τεκοῦσαν, τὴν ὄντως Θεοτόκον, σὲ μεγαλύνομεν.

It is truly right to bless you, Theotokos, ever blessed, most pure, and Mother of our God. More honorable than the Cherubim, and beyond compare more glorious than the Seraphim, without corruption you gave birth to God the Logos. We magnify you, the true Theotokos. [GOA]
