Apostle James, the Brother of the Lord October 23
Troparion — Tone 4
As the Lord’s disciple you received the Gospel, O righteous James; as a martyr you have unfailing courage; as God’s brother, you have boldness; as a hierarch, you have the power to intercede. Pray to Christ God that our souls may be saved.
Kontakion — Tone 4
When God the Word, the Only-begotten of the Father, came to live among us in these last days, He declared you, venerable James, to be the first shepherd and teacher of Jerusalem and a faithful steward of the spiritual Mysteries. Therefore, we all honor you, O Apostle.
The local Church is the living Body of Christ (1Cor 12:27) that serves to live, uphold, and preach the Faith as delivered by Christ, taught by the Apostles, and preserved in the Holy Scriptures and Tradition of the Holy Orthodox Church. We accomplish this mission by
• participation in liturgical worship, • partaking of the spiritual life and sacraments of the Church, • sharing in Christian fellowship as a eucharistic community, • providing for education of the Faith, • engaging in philanthropy, • being wise stewards of our time, talents, and properties and, • being Christ’s ambassadors (2Cor 5:20) to the world in manifesting His love, presence, and preaching.
