We welcome home our own Fr. Jack, after a hopefully peaceful vacation week!
Troparion of Holy Anna (Tone 4)
O holy Anna, you are filled with the wisdom of God, and you gave birth to the most pure Mother, the one who gave birth to Life. Therefore, you have been carried up in glory on this day to the blessedness of heaven, to the abode of those who exult with joy. And now you pray, O ever-blessed one, for the forgiveness of sins for all those who honor you with all their heart.Anna is the patroness for conceiving children and for help in difficult childbirth.
NOTE: Postings of applicable liturgical propers (including the Lord's Prayer) will of course continue to be made on the boards in the nave of the church, but we hope this recap and our advance postings will further assist you in anticipating the "flow" of the Divine Liturgy, navigating the People's Book more effectively and chanting more comfortably and actively.
Troparion of the Holy Prophet (Tone 4)
An angel in the flesh, the foundation of the prophets, and the second forerunner of Christ, the glorious Elijah from on high sent grace to Elisha, to cure sickness and cleanse lepers. He likewise overflows with healing for those who honor him.
