Resurrectional Apolytikion Plagal of the Fourth Tone
You descended from on high, O compassionate One, and condescended to be buried for three days, so that from the passions You might set us free. Our life and resurrection, O Lord, glory be to You. - copyright Fr. Seraphim Dedes and used by permission. All rights reserved.

Apolytikion for 11th Sunday of Luke
You justified the forefathers in faith, and through them betrothed yourself, aforetime, to the Church taken from out of the Gentiles. The saints boast in glory. For from their seed, there exists a noble crop, who is she who without seed has given You birth. By their intercessions, O Christ our God, save our souls. - copyright Narthex Press and used by permission. All rights reserved.

Apolytikion for The Holy Hieromartyr Eleutherius, Bishop of Illyricum
Adorned with flowing priestly vesture and with dripping streams of blood you at once went to your Lord Christ, O blessed wise Eleftherios, annihilator of Satan. Wherefore, do not cease to intercede for those who honor your blessed struggles in faith. - copyright Narthex Press and used by permission. All rights reserved.

Apolytikion of the Church
When you were transfigured on the mountain, O Christ our God, You showed Your disciples Your glory as far as they could bear. So now, for us sinners also, let this same eternal light shine forth through the prayers of the Theotokos. O Giver of Light, glory to You.

Kontakion
On this day the Virgin cometh to the cave to give birth to * God the Word ineffably, * Who was before all the ages. * Dance for joy, O earth, on hearing * the gladsome tidings; * with the Angels and the shepherds now glorify Him * Who is willing to be gazed on * as a young Child Who * before the ages is God. - copyright Holy Transfiguration Monastery, Brookline, MA and used by permission.
