“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." (Matthew 5:9 ESV)
Christ is risen from the dead * trampling down Death by death, * and upon those in the tombs bestowing life! (Troparion)
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.
Although You descended into the tomb, O Immortal One, * You destroyed the power of Hades; * You arose as the victor, O Christ God, * proclaiming to the myrrh-bearing women: “Rejoice!” * And granting peace to Your Apostles, * O, You, Who gives resurrection to the fallen. (Kontakion)
"The wage of the righteous leads to life, the gain of the wicked to sin." (Proverbs 10:10 ESV)
Pray Without Ceasing
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
