The Twenty-Sixth Sunday after Pentecost – Tone One
Resurrectional Troparion, Tone 1.
When the stone had been sealed by the Jews, and soldiers were guarding Thy most pure Body, Thou didst arise on the third day, O Saviour, granting life to the world; therefore, the powers of heaven cried out to Thee, O Giver of life: Glory to Thy Resurrection, O Christ. Glory to Thy kingdom. Glory to Thy dispensation, O Thou Who alone lovest mankind.
Resurrectional Kontakion, Tone 1.
As God Thou didst arise from the tomb in glory, and didst raise up the world with Thyself; human nature hymneth Thee as God, and death hath vanished. Adam exulteth, and Eve, now freed from bonds, rejoiceth, crying aloud. Thou, O Christ, art He Who granteth resurrection unto all.
Now and ever.
Theotokion, Tone 1.
When Gabriel greeted thee, O Virgin, Rejoice, and at his voice the Master of all became incarnate in thee, the holy ark, as the righteous David said, thou wast shown to be more spacious than the heavens, because thou didst carry thy Creator. Glory to Him Who came to dwell in thee. Glory to Him Who came forth from thee. Glory to Him Who set us free by thy childbirth.
Prokeimenon, Tone 1.
Psalm 32:21, 1.
Let Thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us: as we have hoped in Thee.

The Lesson of the Epistle of the Holy Apostle Paul to the Ephesians.
Ephesians §229 (5:8b-19).
Brethren: Walk as children of the light. For the fruit of the light is in all goodness, and justice, and truth; proving what is well pleasing to God: and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For the things that are done by them in secret, it is a shame even to speak of. But all things that are reproved, are made manifest by the light; for all that is made manifest is light. Wherefore He saith: Rise thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead: and Christ shall enlighten thee. See therefore, brethren, how you walk circumspectly: not as unwise, but as wise: redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore become not unwise, but understanding what is the will of God. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is luxury; but be ye filled with the Holy Spirit, speaking to yourselves in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual canticles, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord.
Alleluia, Tone 1.
Psalm 17:48, 51.
Verse 1: O God, Who avengest me, and subduest the people under me. Alleluia.
Verse 2: Giving great deliverance to His king, and shewing mercy to David His anointed: and to his seed for ever. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
The Lesson of the Holy Gospel according to Saint Luke.
Saint Luke §66 (12:16-21).
The Lord spoke this parable: The land of a certain rich man brought forth plenty of fruits. And he thought within himself, saying: What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? And he said: This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and will build greater; and into them will I gather all things that are grown to me, and my goods. And I will say to my soul: Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years take thy rest; eat, drink, make good cheer. But God said to him: Thou fool, this night do they require thy soul of thee: and whose shall those things be which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich towards God.
Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise ye Him in the high places. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
