Apostle Thomas

The Second Sunday of Holy and Glorious Pascha continues the celebration of Pascha. The Church celebrates the confirmation of the Resurrection of Holy God the Son within the Holy Trinity / Our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ, when he changed Holy and Glorious Apostle Thomas' doubts into a profession of faith. The boldness of Holy and Glorious Apostle Thomas is contrasted with the gentleness of Holy God the Son within the Holy Trinity / Our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Apostolos

Acts of the Apostles (chapter 5, verses 12-20). We also continue reading the story of the beginnings of the Church. It is thought that Holy Apostle Luke the Evangelist wrote the Book of Acts of the Apostles .

Gospel

Glorious Apostle John the Theologian and Evangelist (chapter20, verses 19-31) The story is of the Holy and Glorious Apostle Thomas. Holy and Glorious Apostle Thomas was absent at the first appearance of Holy God the Son within the Holy Trinity / Our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ to the Disciples. Holy and Glorious Apostle Thomas didn't believe in the Resurrection until he actually saw and felt Holy God the Son within the Holy Trinity / Our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ's wounds. This Gospel story has for us the powerful message: "Blessed are those who have not seen, yet have believed."

Kontakion, Troparion, Exapostilarion, and Vespers Sticheron or Doxastichon

TROPARION OF (TONE 1)
While the tomb was sealed You shone forth from it, O Christ our Life, and while the doors remained closed You stood among your disciples, Resurrection of all, and through them You restored a new spirit in us according to your great mercy.

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.
