Troparion of the Sunday, Tone II —
When Thou didst descend to death, O Life immortal, / Thou didst slay hell with the splendor
of Thy godhead! / And when from the depths Thou didst raise the dead, / all the powers of
heaven cried out: / O Giver of life, Christ our God, glory to Thee! Hymn to the Theotokos, Tone II —
All beyond thought, all most glorious, / are your mysteries, O Theotokos. / Sealed in purity,
preserved in virginity, / you were revealed to be the true Mother who gave birth to the true
God. / Entreat Him to save our souls. Kontakion of the Sunday, Tone II —
Hell became afraid, O Almighty Savior, / seeing the miracle of Thy Resurrection from the
tomb! / The dead arose! Creation, with Adam, beheld this and rejoiced with Thee! / And the
world, O my Savior, praises Thee forever.
Venerable Father Alypius, Stylite of Adrianopolis, Troparion, Tone I —
Thou wast a pillar of patience, O venerable one,/ emulating the forefathers:/
Job, in afflictions; Joseph in temptations,/ and the life of the incorporeal
ones while in the body./ Entreat Christ God. O Alypius, our father,// that our
souls be saved. Kontakion, Tone VIII "As the firstfruits" —
Today the Church glorifieth and hymneth thee, O Alypius, as a cause of
virtues and the adornment of fasters./ In accordance with thy name thy
supplications grant deliverance from grievous transgressions// unto them that
with love honor thy brave deeds and struggles.
St. Innocent, first bishop of Irkutsk, Troparion, Tone III —
O most radiant beacon of the Church, who hast illumined the Russian land with
the rays of thy good works, and hast glorified God by many healings of them that
have recourse to thy reliquary with faith, O holy hierarch Innocent, our
father, we entreat thee: protect this city from all misfortune and grief. Kontakion, Tone IV —
Ye faithful, let us all praise with love the pastor whose name signifieth
innocence, the preacher of the Faith among the pagans of Mongolia, the glory and
adornment of the flock of Irkutsk; for he is the protector of this land and an
intercessor for our souls.
