(Commemoration of Holy Images)


Gospel: (Jn 1, 43-51)
At that time, Jesus decided to go to Galilee, and he found Philip. And Jesus said to him, “Follow me.” Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the town of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one about whom Moses wrote in the law, and also the prophets, Jesus son of Joseph, from Nazareth.”


But Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come from Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, “Here is a true Israelite. There is no duplicity in him.” Nathanael said to him. “How do you know me?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree.” Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this.” And he said to him, “Amen, amen, I say to you, you will see the sky opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”



Євангелія: (Ів 1, 43-51)
Другого дня, Ісус вирішив піти в Галилею; і знайшовши Филипа, мовив до нього: “Іди за мною”. А був Филип з Витсаїди, з міста Андрієвого та Петрового. Зустрів Филип Натанаїла і сказав до нього: “Ми знайшли того, про кого Мойсей у законі писав і пророки, - Ісуса, Йосифового сина, з Назарету.” Натанаїл же йому на те: “А що доброго може бути з Назарету?” Мовив до нього Филип: “Прийди та подивися.” Побачивши Ісус, що Натанаїл надходив до нього, сказав про нього: “Ось справжній ізраїльтянин, що нема в ньому лукавства.” Натанаїл же йому: “Звідкіль знаєш мене?” Сказав Ісус, промовивши до нього: “Перше, ніж Филип закликав тебе, бачив я тебе, як був єси під смоковницею.” Відповів же йому Натанаїл: “Учителю, ти - Син Божий, ти - цар Ізраїлів.” Ісус відказав, мовивши до нього: “Тому, що я відповідав тобі: Бачив я тебе під смоковницею, - то й віриш! Бачитимеш більш, ніж те.” І сказав до нього: “Істинно, істинно кажу вам: Побачите небеса відкриті й ангелів Божих, як висходять та сходять на Сина Чоловічого.”

Lenten Prayer of St. Ephrem (St. Ephraim the Syrian)

O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power, and idle talk. (Prostration)

Rather grant unto me, Your servant, the spirit of chastity, humility, patience, and love. (Prostration)

Yes, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own transgressions, and not to judge my brother, for blessed art Thou, unto ages of ages. Amen. (Prostration)
