HYMNS FOR THE SMALL ENTRANCE.

APOLYTIKION OF THE RESURRECTION, FOURTH TONE.  Having learned the joyful proclamation of the Resurrection from the Angel and having cast off the ancestral condemnation, the women disciples of the Lord spake to thew Apostles exultantly: Death is despoiled and Christ God is risen, granting great mercy to the world.

APOLYTIKION OF THE WONDERWORKERS, PLAGAL OF FOURTH TONE. O Holy Unmercenaries and wonderworkers, visit our infirmities; freely ye received, freely give to us.

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 strove in contest 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 honor * Nicholas the deacon and Irene the chaste virgin, * as our divine protectors, who now intercede with the Lord.

KONTATION, SECOND TONE. O protection of Christians that cannot be put to shame, mediation unto the Creator most constant: O despise not the suppliant voices of those who have sinned; but be thou quick, O good one, to come unto our aid, who in faith cry unto thee: Hasten to intercession, and speed thou to make supplication, thou who dost ever protect, O Theotokos, them that honour thee.

THE WAY OF THE CHURCH IS LOVE; THIS DIFFERS FROM THE MANNER OF THE LEGALISTS. THE CHURCH SEES EVERYTHING WITH FORBEARANCE AND SEEKS TO HELP EACH PERSON, NO MATTER WHAT HE MAY HAVE DONE, NO MATTER HOW SINFUL HE MAY BE.
