5th Saturday of Great Lent:
The Akathist to the Theotokos
March 24





Troparion — Tone 8


When the archangel understood the mysterious command,
he came to the house of Joseph with haste and proclaimed to the unwedded Lady:
The One Who bowed the heavens by His condescension
is contained wholly and without change in you!
As I behold Him in your womb, taking the form of a servant, I am frightened, but cry:
Rejoice, unwedded Bride!


Kontakion — Tone 8


Victorious leader of triumphant hosts,
we your servants, delivered from evil, sing our grateful thanks to you, Theotokos!
As you possess invincible might set us free from every calamity,
so that we may sing: Rejoice, unwedded Bride!

The Annunciation of our Most Holy Lady,
the Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary
March 25


Troparion — Tone 4


Today is the beginning of our salvation,
The revelation of the eternal mystery!
The Son of God becomes the Son of the Virgin
As Gabriel announces the coming of Grace.
Together with him let us cry to the Theotokos:
Rejoice, O Full of Grace,
The Lord is with You!


Kontakion — Tone 8


O Victorious Leader of Triumphant Hosts!
We, your servants, delivered from evil, sing our grateful thanks to you, O Theotokos!
As you possess invincible might, set us free from every calamity
So that we may sing: Rejoice, O unwedded Bride!
