Resurrectional Apolytikion First Tone
Savior, Your tomb was sealed with a stone. Soldiers kept watch over Your sacred body. Yet, You rose on the third day giving life to the world. Wherefore the powers of heaven cried out, "O Giver of Life, glory to Your Resurrection O Christ; glory to Your Kingdom, glory to Your dispensation who alone are the Loving One." - Copyright Narthex Press, used by permission.

Apolytikion for Sunday of St. Mary of Egypt
The image of God, was faithfully preserved in you, O Mother. For you took up the Cross and followed Christ. By Your actions you taught us to look beyond the flesh for it passes, rather to be concerned about the soul which is immortal. Wherefore, O Holy Mary, your soul rejoices with the angels. - Copyright Narthex Press, used by permission. All rights reserved

Blessed you are O Christ our God, who did render the fishermen all-wise by sending down upon them the Holy Spirit, and through them the world in Your nets enmeshing, glory to You.
O Protection of Christians that cannot be put to shame, mediation unto the creator most constant: O despise not the voices of those who have sinned; but be quick, O good one, to come unto our aid, who in faith cry unto thee: Hasten to intercession and speed thou to make supplication, O thou who dost ever protect, O Theotokos, them that honor thee. - Copyright Holy Transfiguration Monastery, Brookline, MA, used by permission.
