Sunday of the Holy Myrrhbearing Women

with the Noble Joseph & Nicodemus
May 16


Troparion (Pascha)


Christ is risen from the dead,
trampling down death by death,
and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!


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.
But You rose on the third day, O Lord,
granting the world great mercy.


Troparion — Tone 2


The angel came to the myrrhbearing women at the tomb and said:
Myrrh is meet for the dead;
but Christ has shown Himself a stranger to corruption!
So proclaim: The Lord is risen,
granting the world great mercy!


Kontakion — Tone 2


When You proclaimed “Rejoice” to the Myrrhbearers,
You caused the lamentation of the first mother Eve to cease by Your Resurrection; O Christ God;
You bade Your Apostles to preach:
“The Savior is risen from the tomb.”
