Great Martyr Panteleimon
Troparion (Tone 6) (Resurrection)
The angelic powers were at Thy tomb / the guards became as dead men / Mary stood by Thy grave / seeking Thy most pure Body / Thou didst capture hell / not being tempted by it / Thou didst come to the Virgin, granting life // O Lord who didst rise from the dead: glory to Thee.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
Kontakion (Tone 6) (Resurrection)
When Christ God the Giver of Life / raised all of the dead from the valleys of misery with His mighty hand / He bestowed resurrection on the human race // He is the Savior of all, the Resurrection, the Life, and the God of all.
Prokeimenon (Tone 6)
O Lord, save Thy people // and bless Thine inheritance.
Vs. To Thee, O Lord, will I call. O my God, be not silent to me.
Epistle Reading(Romans 15:1-7)
Brethren, we then that are strong ought to bear with the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to edification. For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of them that reproached Thee fell on Me.” For whatsoever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like-minded one toward another, according to Christ Jesus, that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore receive ye one another, just as Christ also received us,to the glory of God.
Verses after the Epistle
And to your spirit. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the heavenly God.
He will say to the Lord: My Protector and my Refuge, my God in whom I trust.
Gospel Reading(Matthew 9:27-35)
Let us attend: And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us. And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it. But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country. As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a devil. And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel. But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils. And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
