9th Sunday after Pentecost / The Holy Great Martyr and Healer Panteleimon

Beatitudes on 10 Octoechos: 6; Great Martyr: 4, from Ode 3.


1.  Remember us, O Christ, Thou Savior of the world, as Thou didst remember the thief

upon the Cross; and account us all worthy of Thy heavenly kingdom, O Thou Who alone

art compassionate.


2.  Hearken, O Adam, and rejoice with Eve; for he who of old stripped you both naked,

and by deception hath taken all of us captive, hath been set at nought by the Cross of



3.  Nailed of Thine own will to the Tree, O our Savior, Thou didst deliver Adam from the

curse which came through the tree, and hast rewarded that which is in Thine image with a

dwelling in paradise, in that Thou art compassionate.


4.  Today is Christ risen from the tomb, granting incorruption unto all the faithful; and He

5.  Rejoice, O wise myrrh-bearing women, who were first to behold the resurrection of

Christ, and who proclaimed to the apostles the glad tidings of the restoration of the whole



6.  O ye apostles, who are manifestly the friends of Christ and are to be enthroned with

7.  Hearkening to the words of the Spirit, thou didst become like good and fertile land,

receiving the precious Seed and giving rise to salvation of souls, O thrice-blessed one.


8.  Having been reborn in manner divinely inspired, thou didst slay the arrogance of the

serpent’s sting and didst restore a soul to life; and thou standest before the King of all.


9.  Loving the piety of thy mother, O glorious one, thou didst despise the greatly

vexatious godlessness of thy father; for, possessed of reason, thou didst choose that which

is better.


10.  The Lord, Who holdeth all creation in His divine hand, is borne on thine arm, O

Virgin.  Him do thou now entreat, that He deliver from misfortunes those who hymn thee.


Troparia & Kontakia


Tone 8:  From on high didst Thou descend, O compassionate One; /

to burial of three days hast Thou submitted /

that Thou mightest free us from our passions. //

O our Life and Resurrection, O Lord, glory be to Thee.

Tone 3: O holy passion-bearer and healer Panteleimon, /

intercede with the merciful God //

that He grant unto our souls forgiveness of offences.

Eve also danceth at Thy Resurrection, //

and the ends of the world celebrate Thine arising from the dead, O Greatly-merciful one.


[Kontakion of the Temple]


Glory… Tone 5:  As an imitator of the Merciful One, /

and as one who received from Him the grace of healing, /

O passion-bearer and martyr of Christ our God, /

by thy prayers heal the diseases of our souls, /

and ever banish the snares of the enemy from them that cry with faith: //

Save us, O Lord.


Both now... Tone 6: O protection of Christians that cannot be put to shame, /

O mediation unto the Creator unfailing, /

disdain not the suppliant voices of sinners, /

but be thou quick, O good one, to help us who in faith cry unto thee; /

hasten to intercession and speed thou to make supplication, //

thou who dost ever protect, O Theotokos, them that honor thee.
