THE 11th SUNDAY OF SAINT MATTHEW.
The Holy Prophet Samuel,
whose memory we commemorate and of all the Saints,
for You are gracious and loveth mankind.
Tone 2. Eothinon 11.
HYMNS FOR THE SMALL ENTRANCE.
APOLYTIKION OF THE RESURRECTION, SECOND TONE. 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 powers in the Heavens cried out: O Life-giver, Christ
our God, glory be to Thee.
APOLYTIKION OF THE DORMITION, FIRST TONE. In giving birth, thou didst preserve thy
virginity; in thy dormition, thou didst not forsake the world, O Theotokos. Thou wast translated unto life,
since thou art the Mother of Life; and by thine intercessions dost thou redeem our souls from death.
APOLYTIKION OF THE CHAPEL, STS. RAPHAEL, NICHOLAS AND IRENE, FOURTH TONE. On Lesbos,
ye contested for the sake of Christ God; * ye also have hallowed her with the discovery of your relics, O blessed
ones. O God-bearer Raphael, with thee, we all honour * Nicholas the deacon and Irene the chaste virgin, * as our
divine protectors, who now intercede with the Lord.
KONTAKION OF THE DORMITION, SECOND TONE. The grave and death could not hold the Theotokos,
who is unsleeping in her intercessions and an unfailing hope in her mediations. For as the Mother of Life she
was translated to life by Him Who dwelt in her ever-virgin womb.
