The Sunday of the Fifteenth Week after the Great Feast of the Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Cross is theoretically the sixteenth Sunday following the Great Feast of the Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Cross.
This Sunday is commonly called "(Sunday of the) Fifteenth Week after the Holy Cross" or "Fifteenth Sunday after the Holy Cross".
From the Monday after the Great Feast of Pentecost to Great and Holy Saturday, Sunday is the last day of the Liturgical week.
The Sunday of the Fifteenth Week after the Great Feast of the Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Cross is also named "Zacchaeus".

Apostolos

The Apostolos reading is either:

  • Heb. 13:7-16
  • 32rd Sun. after Pentecost: 1 Tim: 4:9-15

Gospel

The Gospel reading is Lk. 7:11-16. The Gospel is for this Sunday.

XXXX Sunday after the Great Feast of Pentecost and (Sunday of the) YYYY Week after the Great Feast of the of the Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Holy Cross

Every Sunday that is a (Sunday of the) YYYY Week after the Great Feast of Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Holy Cross is also a Sunday after the Great Feast of Pentecost. There is one exception: the (Sunday of the) Fourth Week after the Great Feast of Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Holy Cross: Fathers of the Seventh Ecumenical Council (The Second Council of Nicaea).
Because the Great Feast of Pentecost is a movable feast, the XXXX Sunday after the Great Feast of Pentecost that is matched with the (Sunday of the) YYYY Week after the Great Feast of the Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Holy Cross changes yearly.

Readings

  • Apostolos - XXXX Sunday after the Great Feast of Pentecost.
  • Gospel - (Sunday of the) YYYY Week after the Great Feast of the of the Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Holy Cross.

Date When Occurs

The (Sunday of the) The Fifteenth Week of the Great Feast of the Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Cross occurs only when Feasts of Feasts Holy and Glorious Pascha is late enough in the year so that there is one to four Sundays between the Sunday After Great Feast of the Holy Theophany of Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ and the First Sunday of the Triodion / the First Sunday of the Prophonisimon: Sunday of the Pharisee and the Publican.
Then, (Sunday of the) The Fifteenth Week is on the first, second, or third Sunday after the Sunday after Great Feast of the Holy Theophany of Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The (Sunday of the) The Fifteenth Week of the Great Feast of the Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Cross is never the fourth Sunday after the Sunday after Great Feast of the Holy Theophany of Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Only the Seventeenth Sunday after the Great Feast of Pentecost, the Sunday of the Canaanite Woman can be the fourth Sunday after Great Feast of the Holy Theophany of Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ and before the First Sunday of the Triodion / the First Sunday of the Prophonisimon: Sunday of the Pharisee and the Publican.

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
