Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered; let those who hate Him flee from before His face.

Tropar Христос воскрес із мертвих,* смертю смерть подолав* і тим, що в гробах життя дарував.

As smoke vanishes, let them vanish, as wax melts before the fire.

Tropar: Christ is risen from the dead, trampling death by death, and to those in the tombs giving life.

So let sinners perish before the face of God, but let the righteous be glad.

Tropar : Christ is risen from the dead, trampling death by death, and to those in the tombs giving life.

In the churches bless God, the Lord from the fountains of Israel.

Замість Святий Боже
Ви всі, що в Христа хрестилися, у Христа зодягнулися: Алилуя. (3) Слава Отцю, і Сину, і Святому Духові,* і нині і повсякчас і навіки вічні. Амінь.
у Христа зодягнулися: Алилуя.
Ви всі, що в Христа хрестилися, у Христа зодягнулися: Алилуя.

This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. verse (solo): Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, for His mercy endures forever. This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Epistle: Acts 1: 18

A Reading from the Acts of the Apostles:
In my first Book, Theophilus, I dealt with all that Jesus did and taught until the day he was taken up, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apos- tles whom he had chosen. He presented himself alive to them by many proofs after he had suffered, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the king- dom of God. While meeting with them, he enjoined them not to depart from Jeru- salem, but to wait for
the promise of the Father about which you heard me speak: for John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.When they had gathered together, they asked him, Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?He answered them, It is not for you to know the times or seasons that the Father has established by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

Resurrection of Our Lord Воскресіння ГНІХ

Alleluia Verse:
When You rise, You will have compassion on Sion. Alleluia. (3x)
The Lord looked down from heaven to earth to hear the groans of the prisoners, to set free the sons of those put to death. Alleluia! (3x)

Gospel– John 1: 1-18
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through Him, and without Him nothing came to be. What came to be through Him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

A man named John was sent from God. He came for testimony, to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to testify to the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world came to be through Him, but the world did not know Him. He came to what was His own, but His own people did not accept Him. But to those who did accept Him He gave power to become children of God, to those who believed in His name; who were born not by natural generation nor by human choice nor by a man’s decision but of God. And the Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth.
John testified to Him and cried out saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘The one who is coming after me ranks ahead of me because He existed before me.’” From His fullness we all received grace in place of grace. For while the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

It is truly right… Достойно
The Angel cried out to the One full of Grace: O chaste Virgin, Rejoice! And again I say, Rejoice! Your Son has risen from the tomb on the third day, and raised the dead. Let all people rejoice! Shine, shine, O new Jerusalem! For the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! Exult now and be glad, O Sion! And you, O chaste Mother of God, take delight in the resurrection of your Son.

Communion Verse:
Receive the Body of Christ; taste the fountain of immortality. Alleluia (3x)!

A Private Blessing during Holy Week and the Easter Season for Protection from the Coronavirus

In the Old Testament Book of Exodus, God instructed Moses to slaugh- ter the lambs and take some of the blood and apply it to the two door- posts and the lintel of the houses in which the Hebrews dwell.

Then the Lord said:

For on this same night I will go through Egypt, striking down every firstborn in the land, human being and beast alike. . . . But for you the blood will mark the houses where you are. Seeing the blood, I will pass over you; thereby, when I strike the land of Egypt, no destructive blow will come upon you.

This day will be a day of remembrance for you, which your future generations will celebrate with pilgrimage to the LORD. (Exodus 12:12-14)

The anointing of the lintel and door posts with the blood of the lamb protected the Hebrew people from the angel of death. This became known as the Passover.

Our Book of Prayers (the Euchologian) has a prayer for blessing of a new home, where the sign of the cross is made with olive oil above the front door of the house and repeated on each of the walls of the house. Similarly when a new church is con- secrated, the walls are blessed with Holy Oil with the making of the Sign of the Cross while the words “In the name of Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” are said.

This Holy Week, which coincides with the beginning of the Jewish Passover, people are seeking protection from a new angel of death that is threatening every human life throughout the world.

The following is a simple ritual which you and your family may perform in asking God to protect you and those who dwell within your house.

Gather together as a family and with some olive oil and a lighted candle stand out- side before the front door of your house. The head of the household should place the thumb of the right hand in the olive oil and then trace the Sign of the Cross above the door, saying “In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

The ritual concludes with everyone saying “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. Amen.”
