Great and Holy Friday
April 26

 

Troparion — Tone 2

 

The Noble Joseph,
When he had taken down Your most pure Body from the tree,
Wrapped it in fine linen,
And anointed it with spices,
And placed it in a new tomb.

 

Troparion — Tone 2

 

The angel came to the myrrh-bearing women at the tomb and said:
Myrrh is fitting for the dead,
But Christ has shown Himself a stranger to corruption.

 

Kontakion — Tone 8

 

Come, let us all sing the praises of Him who was crucified for us,
For Mary said when she beheld Him upon the tree:
Though You do endure the cross, You are my Son and my God!
