Tone 4 Troparion (Resurrection)
When the women disciples of the Lord
learned from the angel the joyous message of Thy Resurrection, they cast away the ancestral curse
and elatedly told the apostles:
“Death is overthrown!
Christ God is risen,//
granting the world great mercy!”

Tone 3 Troparion (St. Paul)
For confessing the divine faith,
among her priests the Church has shown you to be another Paul. Abel cries out to the Lord together with you,
as does the righteous blood of Zachariah.//
Venerable Father, entreat Christ God to grant us His great mercy.

Tone 4 Kontakion (Resurrection) My Savior and Redeemer

as God rose from the tomb and delivered the earth-born from their chains. He has shattered the gates of hell,
and as Master,// He has risen on the third day!


Tone 2 Kontakion (St. Paul)
Paul, you shone on the earth like a star of heavenly splendor;
now you enlighten the universal Church for which you suffered,
for you laid down your life,//
and your blood cries out to the Lord like that of Zachariah and Abel.

Tone 4 Prokeimenon(Resurrection)
O Lord, how manifold are Your works; / in wisdom have You made them all. V. Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord, my God, You are very great! (Ps. 103:1)

Galatians 2:16-20 (Epistle)

knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not! For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

V. Go forth, prosper and reign, for the sake of meekness, righteousness and truth! V. For You love righteousness, and hate iniquity. (Ps. 44:6)

Luke 8:41-56 (Gospel)

And behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue. And he fell down at Jesus’ feet and begged Him to come to his house, for he had an only daughter about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But as He went, the multitudes thronged Him. Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped. And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?” When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’” But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.” Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately. And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” While He was still speaking, someone came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, “Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble the Teacher.” But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, “Do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well.” When He came into the house, He permitted no one to go in except Peter, James, and John, and the father and mother of the girl. Now all wept and mourned for her; but He said, “Do not weep; she is not dead, but sleeping.” And they ridiculed Him, knowing that she was dead. But He put them all outside, took her by the hand and called, saying, “Little girl, arise.” Then her spirit returned, and she arose immediately. And He commanded that she be given something to eat. And her parents were astonished, but He charged them to tell no one what had happened.

Communion Hymn Praise the Lord from the heavens, praise Him in the highest! Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
