Rejoice in the Resurrection
O God, you make us glad with the weekly remembrance of the glorious resurrection of your Son our Lord. Therefore, give us this day blessings through our worship of you. As a result, may the week be spent in your favor, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Hymns from the Pentcostarion
Kontakion, tone eight: O immortal, you descended into the tomb. You destroyed the power of death. As a result, in victory you arose, O Christ God. You proclaimed “Rejoice” to the myrrh-bearing women. Your peace was given to your apostles. Consequently, resurrection was bestowed on the fallen.
