Readings

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.

  • 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.

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.
