Second Sunday after Pentecost

Second Sunday after Pentecost, Tone One.

The Lesson of the Epistle of the Holy Apostle Paul to the Romans.
Romans 2:10-16.
Brethren: Glory and honor and peace every one that worketh good, to the Jew first and to the Greek. For there is not acception of persons with God. For whosoever have sinned without the Law, without the Law shall perish: and whosoever have sinned in the Law, by the Law shall be judged. For not the hearers of the Law are just with God: but the doers of the Law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles which have not the Law, naturally do those things that are of the Law: the same not having the Law, themselves are a law to themselves: who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience giving testimony to them, and among themselves mutually their thoughts accusing, or also descending, in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men, according to my Gospel, by Jesus Christ.

The Lesson of the Holy Gospel according to Saint Matthew.
St Matthew 4:18-23.
At that time: Jesus walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea (for they were fishers) and He saith to them, Come ye after Me, and I will make you to be fishers of men. But they incontinent leaving the nets, followed Him. And going forward from thence, He saw other two brethren, James of Zebedee and John his brother in a ship with Zebedee their father, repairing their nets: and He called them. And they forthwith left their nets and father and followed Him. And Jesus went round about all Galilee, teaching in their Synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom; and healing every malady and every infirmity in the people.
