We greet all our parishioners and friends with the coming Feast of the Resurrection of Christ

Сердечно приветствуем всех наших прихожан и друзьей с наступающим Праздником Воскресения Христова

Palm Sunday –
Entry into Jerusalem

Неделя Ваий –
Вербное воскресенье, Вход во Иерусалим

Troparion, Tone 1: In confirming the general resurrection before Thy Passion, * Thou didst raise Lazarus from the tomb, O Christ God. * Wherefore we also, like the children bearing the symbols of victory, * cry to Thee, the Vanquisher of death: * Hosanna in the highest; * blessed is He that cometh ** in the name of the Lord.

Тропа́рь, Глáсъ 1: О́бщее воскресе́ніе, * прéжде Твоея̀Стра́сти увѣря́я, * изъ мéртвыхъ воздви́глъ есѝ ЛáзаряХрістѐБо́же. * Тѣ́мже и мы̀ я́коо́троцы побѣ́ды знáменія нося́ще, *Тебѣ̀ побѣди́телю смéрти вопіéмъ: **Осáнна въ вы́шнихъ, благословéнъ гряды́й во и́мяГоспо́дне.

Troparion, Tone 4: As by baptism we were buried with Thee, O Christ our God, * so by Thy Resurrection we were deemed worthy of immortal life; * and praising Thee, we cry: * Hosanna in the highest; ** blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Тропа́рь, Глáсъ 4: СпогрéбшесяТебѣ̀ крещéніемъ ХрістѐБо́женáшъ, безсмéртныя жи́зни сподо́бихомсяВоскресе́ніемъ Твои́мъ, и воспѣвáюще зовéмъ: Осáнна въ вы́шнихъ, благословéнъ гряды́й во и́мяГоспо́дне.

Kontakion, Tone 6: Being borne upon a throne in heaven, * and upon a colt opon the earth, O Christ God, * Thou didst accept the praise of the angels * and the laudation of the children as they cry to Thee: ** Blessed is He that cometh to recall Adam.

Кондáкъ, Глáсъ 6: На престо́лѣ на небесѝ, * на жребя́ти на землѝ носи́мый Хрістѐ Бо́же, * а́нгеловъ хвалéніе, и дѣтéй воспѣвáніе прія́лъ есѝ зовýщихъ Тѝ: ** Благословéнъ есѝ гряды́й Адáма воззвáти.

Установление Евхаристии

Troparion, Tone 8: Behold, the Bridegroom cometh in the middle of the night, * and blessed is that servant whom He shall find watching; * but unworthy is he whom He shall find heedless. * Beware, therefore, O my soul, lest thou be borne down with sleep; * lest thou be given over to death, * and be shut out of the kingdom. * But rouse thyself and cry: * Holy, Holy, Holy art Thou, O God; ** through the Theotokos have mercy on us.

Тропа́рь, Глáсъ 8: СѐЖени́хъ грядéтъ въ полýнощи, * и блажéнъ рáбъ, его́же обря́щетъ бдя́ща: * недосто́инъ же пáки, его́же обря́щетъ унывáюща. * Блюдѝ у́бо душѐ моя̀, не сно́мъ отяготи́ся, * да не смéрти предана̀ бýдеши, * и ца́рствія внѣ̀ затвори́шися, * но воспрянѝ зовýщи: * Свя́тъ, Свя́тъ, Свя́тъ есѝ Бо́же, ** Богогро́дицею поми́луй нáсъ.

Troparion, Tone 8: When the glorious disciples were enlightened at the washing of the feet, * then Judas the ungodly one was stricken and darkened with the love of silver. * And unto the lawless judges did he deliver Thee, the righteous Judge. * Behold, O lover of money, him that for the sake thereof did hang himself; * flee from that insatiable soul that dared such things against the Master. ** O Thou Who art good unto all, Lord, glory be to Thee.

Тропа́рь, Глáсъ 8: Егда̀ слáвніи ученцы̀ на умовéніи вéчери просвѣщáхуся, * тогда̀Іýда ѕлочести́вый сребролю́біемъ недýговавъ омрачáшеся, * и беззако́ннымъ судія́мъ Тебѐ прáведнаго Судію̀ предаéтъ. * Ви́ждь имѣ́ній рачи́телю, си́хъ рáди удавлéніе употреби́вша! * Бѣжѝ несы́тыя душѝ, Учи́телю таковáя дерзнýвшія: ** И́же о всѣ́хъ Благíй, Го́споди слáва Тебѣ̀.

Troparion, Tone 6: Of Thy Mystical Supper, O Son of God, * receive me today as a communicant, * for I will not speak of Thy mystery to Thine enemies, * neither like Judas will I give Thee a kiss, * but like the thief do I confess Thee: ** Remember me, O Lord, in Thy Kingdom.

Тропа́рь, Глáсъ 6: Вéчери Твоея̀Тáйныя днéсь, * Сы́не Бо́жій, причáстника мя̀ пріимѝ: * не бо̀ враго́мъ твои̃мъ тáйну повѣ́мъ, * ни лобзáніяТѝ дáмъ я́коІýда, * но я́ко разбо́йникъ исповѣ́даю Тя̀: ** Помяни́ мяГо́споди во Ца́рствіи Твоéмъ.

Kontakion, Tone 2: Taking bread into his hands * the betrayer stretcheth them forth secretly * and receiveth the price of Him that, with His Own hands, fashioned man. ** And Judas, the slave and deceiver, remained incorrigible.

Кондáкъ, Глáсъ 2: Хлѣ́бъ пріéмъ въ рýцѣ предáтель, * сокровéнно ты̃я простирáетъ, * и пріéмлетъ цѣ́ну СоздáвшагоСвои́ма Рукáма человѣ́ка, ** и неиспрáвленъ пребы́сть Іýда рáбъ и льстéцъ.

Кондáкъ, Глáсъ 8: Нáсъ рáди распя́таго, пріиди́те всѝ воспои́мъ, * Того́ бо ви́дѣ Марíа на дрéвѣ, и глаго́лаше: ** А́ще и распя́тіе терпи́ши, Ты̀ есѝ Сы́нъ и Бо́гъ мо́й.

Великая Суббота –Погребение Господне

Troparia, Tone 2: The noble Joseph, having taken down Thy most pure Body from the Tree * and wrapped It in pure linen * and covered It with spices, ** laid It in a new tomb

Тропарѝ, Глáсъ 2: Благообрáзный Іо́сифъ, съ дрéва снéмъ пречи́cтое Тѣ́ло Твоѐ, * плащани́цею чи́стою обви́въ, * и воня́ми во Гро́бѣ но́вѣ ** покры́въ положѝ.

When Thou didst descend unto death, O Life Immortal, * then didst Thou slay Hades with the lightning of Thy divinity. * And when thou didst also raise the dead out of the nethermost depths, * all the Hosts of the heavens cried out: ** O Life-Giver, Christ our God, glory be to Thee.

Егда̀ снизшéлъ есѝ къ смéрти, Животѐ Безсмéртный, * тогда̀ А́дъ умертви́лъ есѝ блистáніемъ Божества̀. * Егдá же и умéршыя * отъ преиспо́днихъ воскреси́лъ есѝ, * вся̃ си̃лы небе́cныя взывáху: ** Жизнодáвче Хрістѐ Бо́же нáшъ, слáва Тебѣ̀.

Unto the Myrrh-Bearing Women * did the angel cry out as he stood by the grave: * Myrrh is meet for the dead, ** but Christ hath proved a stranger to corruption.

Мѵроно́сицамъ женáмъ, при гро́бѣ * предстáвъ а́нгелъ вопія́ше: * мѵ̃ра ме́ртвымъ сýть прили́чна, ** Хрісто́съ же истлѣ́ніяяви́ся чýждь.

Kontakion, Tone 2: He that shut up the abyss is seen as one dead, * and like a mortal, the Immortal One is wrapped in linen and myrrh, and placed in a grave. * And women came to anoint Him, weeping bitterly and crying out: ** This is the most blessed Sabbath day wherein Christ, having slept, shall arise on the third day.

Кондáкъ, Глáсъ 2: Бéздну заключи́вый,мéртвъ зри́тся, * и смѵ́рною и плащани́цею обви́вся, * во гро́бѣ полагáетсяя́ко смéртный безсмéртный: * Женѝ же пріидо́ша помáзати Его̀ мѵ́ромъ, * плáчущыя го́рько и вопію́щыя: ** Сія̀Суббо́та е́сть преблагословéнная, въ нéйже Хрісто́съ уснýвъ, воскрéснетъ триднéвенъ.

Pascha – The Resurrection of our Lord

Пасха – Восресение Господне

Processional Hymn, Tone 6: Thy Resurrection, O Christ our Saviour, * the angels hymn in the heavens; * vouchsafe us also on earth ** with a pure heart to glorify Thee.

Стіхи́ра, Глáсъ 6: Воскресе́ніе ТвоѐХрістѐСпа́се, * а́нгели пою́тъ на небесѣ́хъ, * и нáсъ на землѝ сподо́би ** чи́стымъ сéрдцемъ Тебѐ слáвити.  

Troparion, Tone 5: Christ is risen from the dead, * trampling down death by death, ** and on those in the tombs bestowing life.

Тропарѝ, Глáсъ 5:Хрісто́съ воскрéсе изъ мéртвыхъ, * смéртію смéрть попрáвъ, ** и сýщымъ во гробѣ́хъ живо́тъ даровáвъ.

Kontakion, Tone 8: Though Thou didst descend into the grave, O Immortal One, * yet didst Thou slay the power of Hades. * And didst arise as victor, O Christ God, * calling to the myrrh-bearing women: Rejoice! * And giving   peace unto Thine apostles: ** O Thou Who dost grant resurrection to the fallen.

Кондáкъ, Глaсъ 8:А́ще и во гро́бъ снизшéлъ есѝ безсмéртне, но а́дову разруши́лъ есѝ си́лу, и воскрéслъ есѝ я́ко побѣди́тель ХрістѐБо́же, женáмъ мѵроно́сицамъ вѣщáвый: Рáдуйтеся, и Твои̃мъ апо́cтоломъ ми́ръ дáруяй, пáдшымъ подая́й воскресéніе.
