Ιωα ιʹ 1-9

Jn. 10:1-9

Εἶπεν ὁ Κύριος πρὸς τοὺς ἐληλυθότας πρὸς αὐτὸν Ἰουδαίους· Ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ὁ μὴ εἰσερχόμενος διὰ τῆς θύρας εἰς τὴν αὐλὴν τῶν προβάτων ἀλλὰ ἀναβαίνων ἀλλαχόθεν ἐκεῖνος κλέπτης ἐστὶν καὶ λῃστής· ὁ δὲ εἰσερχόμενος διὰ τῆς θύρας ποιμήν ἐστιν τῶν προβάτων. Τούτῳ ὁ θυρωρὸς ἀνοίγει, καὶ τὰ πρόβατα τῆς φωνῆς αὐτοῦ ἀκούει, καὶ τὰ ἴδια πρόβατα φωνεῖ κατ' ὄνομα καὶ ἐξάγει αὐτά. Ὅταν τὰ ἴδια πάντα ἐκβάλῃ, ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῶν πορεύεται, καὶ τὰ πρόβατα αὐτῷ ἀκολουθεῖ, ὅτι οἴδασιν τὴν φωνὴν αὐτοῦ· ἀλλοτρίῳ δὲ οὐ μὴ ἀκολουθήσουσιν ἀλλὰ φεύξονται ἀπ' αὐτοῦ, ὅτι οὐκ οἴδασιν τῶν ἀλλοτρίων τὴν φωνήν. Ταύτην τὴν παροιμίαν εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς· ἐκεῖνοι δὲ οὐκ ἔγνωσαν τίνα ἦν ἃ ἐλάλει αὐτοῖς. Εἶπεν οὖν πάλιν ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι ἡ θύρα τῶν προβάτων. Πάντες ὅσοι ἦλθον πρὸ ἐμοῦ κλέπται εἰσὶν καὶ λῃσταί· ἀλλ' οὐκ ἤκουσαν αὐτῶν τὰ πρόβατα. Ἐγώ εἰμι ἡ θύρα· δι' ἐμοῦ ἐάν τις εἰσέλθῃ σωθήσεται καὶ εἰσελεύσεται καὶ ἐξελεύσεται καὶ νομὴν εὑρήσει.

The Lord said to the Jews who had come to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber; but he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the gatekeeper opens; the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers." This figure Jesus used with them, but they did not understand what he was saying to them. So Jesus again said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not heed them. I am the door; if any one enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture." [RSV]

Psalm 50 (51).

Ἐλέησόν με, ὁ Θεός, κατὰ τὸ μέγα ἔλεός σου, καὶ κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῶν οἰκτιρμῶν σου ἐξάλειψον τὸ ἀνόμημά μου. Ἐπὶ πλεῖον πλῦνόν με ἀπὸ τῆς ἀνομίας μου, καὶ απὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας μου καθάρισόν με. Ὅτι τὴν ἀνομίαν μου ἐγὼ γινώσκω, καὶ ἡ ἁμαρτία μου ἐνώπιόν μού ἐστι διὰ παντός. Σοὶ μόνῳ ἥμαρτον καὶ τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιόν σου ἐποίησα, ὅπως ἂν δικαιωθῇς ἐν τοῖς λόγοις σου, καὶ νικήσῃς ἐν τῷ κρίνεσθαί σε. Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἐν ἀνομίαις συνελήφθην, καὶ ἐν ἁμαρτίαις ἐκίσσησέ με ἡ μήτηρ μου. Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἀλήθειαν ἠγάπησας, τὰ ἄδηλα καὶ τὰ κρύφια τῆς σοφίας σου ἐδήλωσάς μοι. Ραντιεῖς με ὑσσώπῳ, καὶ καθαρισθήσομαι, πλυνεῖς με, καὶ ὑπὲρ χιόνα λευκανθήσομαι. Ἀκουτιεῖς μοι ἀγαλλίασιν καὶ εὐφροσύνην· ἀγαλλιάσονται ὀστέα τεταπεινωμένα. Ἀπόστρεψον τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἀπὸ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν μου καὶ πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας μου ἐξάλειψον. Καρδίαν καθαρὰν κτίσον ἐν ἐμοί, ὁ Θεός, καὶ πνεῦμα εὐθὲς ἐγκαίνισον ἐν τοῖς ἐγκάτοις μου. Μὴ ἀποῤῥίψῃς με ἀπὸ τοῦ προσώπου σου καὶ το Πνεῦμά σου τὸ ἅγιον μὴ ἀντανέλῃς ἀπ' ἐμοῦ. Ἀπόδος μοι τὴν ἀγαλλίασιν τοῦ σωτηρίου σου καὶ πνεύματι ἡγεμονικῷ στήριξόν με. Διδάξω ἀνόμους τὰς ὁδούς σου, καὶ ἀσεβεῖς ἐπὶ σὲ ἐπιστρέψουσι. Ρῦσαί με ἐξ αἱμάτων, ὁ Θεός, ὁ Θεὸς τῆς σωτηρίας μου· ἀγαλλιάσεται ἡ γλῶσσά μου τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου. Κύριε, τὰ χείλη μου ἀνοίξεις, καὶ τὸ στόμα μου ἀναγγελεῖ τὴν αἴνεσίν σου. Ὅτι εἰ ἠθέλησας θυσίαν, ἔδωκα ἄν· ὁλοκαυτώματα οὐκ εὐδοκήσεις. Θυσία τῷ Θεῷ πνεῦμα συντετριμμένον, καρδίαν συντετριμμένην καὶ τεταπεινωμένην ὁ Θεὸς οὐκ ἐξουδενώσει. Ἀγάθυνον, Κύριε, ἐν τῇ εὐδοκίᾳ σου τὴν Σιών, καὶ οἰκοδομηθήτω τὰ τείχη Ἱερουσαλήμ. Τότε εὐδοκήσεις θυσίαν δικαιοσύνης, ἀναφορὰν καὶ ὁλοκαυτώματα. Τότε ἀνοίσουσιν ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριόν σου μόσχους.

Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your great mercy; and according to the abundance of Your compassion, blot out my transgression. Wash me thoroughly from my lawlessness and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my lawlessness, and my sin is always before me. Against You only have I sinned and done evil in Your sight; that You may be justified in Your words, and overcome when You are judged. For behold, I was conceived in transgressions, and in sins my mother bore me. Behold, You love truth; You showed me the unknown and secret things of Your wisdom. You shall sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be cleansed; You shall wash me, and I will be made whiter than snow. You shall make me hear joy and gladness; my bones that were humbled shall greatly rejoice. Turn Your face from my sins, and blot out all my transgressions. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with Your guiding Spirit. I will teach transgressors Your ways, and the ungodly shall turn back to You. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue shall greatly rejoice in Your righteousness. O Lord, You shall open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise. For if You desired sacrifice, I would give it; You will not be pleased with whole burnt offerings. A sacrifice to God is a broken spirit, a broken and humbled heart God will not despise. Do good, O Lord, in Your good pleasure to Zion, and let the walls of Jerusalem be built; then You will be pleased with a sacrifice of righteousness, with offerings and whole burnt offerings; then shall they offer young bulls on Your altar.

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐπὶ ταῖς δυναστείαις αὐτοῦ, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῆς μεγαλωσύνης αὐτοῦ.

Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to the abundance of His greatness. [SAAS]

Τῆς Ἐκκλησίας τὸν θεῖον, ἀνευφημήσωμεν, Ἀρχιεράρχην ὄντως, καὶ διδάσκαλον μέγαν, τὸν κήρυκα τοῦ λόγου τὸν θαυμαστόν, Ἰσαπόστολον Φώτιον· καὶ γὰρ ἐπέστη ἡ τούτου πανευκλεής, μνήμη ἅπαντας εὐφραίνουσα.

With hymns of praise let us honor the Church's truly divine * great Hierarch and shepherd * and magnificent Teacher, * admirable preacher of God the Word, * peer of Apostles, Saint Photios. * Indeed today is his glorious sacred feast * and memorial, which gladdens all. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ἤχῳ σάλπιγγος, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ψαλτηρίῳ καὶ κιθάρᾳ.

Praise Him with the sound of trumpet; praise Him with the harp and lyre. [SAAS]

Τῶν ἀρετῶν σε δοχεῖον, καλοῦμεν Φώτιε, ὡς τῆς εἰρήνης φίλον, τῆς ἀγάπης ἐργάτην, καὶ στήλην σωφροσύνης καὶ προσευχῆς, ἐνδιαίτημα ἄσυλον, καὶ ἰαμάτων ταμεῖον καὶ πρεσβευτήν, τῶν τιμώντων σε μακάριε.

You were a vessel of virtues, being a friend of peace, * a worker of divine love, * and a safe house of prayer, * O blessed one, a pillar of self-restraint, * and of healings a treasure chest, * an intercessor to God on behalf of those * who now honor you, O Photios. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν τυμπάνῳ καὶ χορῷ, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν χορδαῖς καὶ ὀργάνῳ.

Praise Him with timbrel and dance; praise Him with strings and flute. [SAAS]

Τοῖς Ἀποστόλοις συνήφθης, ὡς Ἰσαπόστολος· καὶ γὰρ σὺ Βουλγαρίας, Σλαβικῆς τε ἁπάσης, φυλῆς ὁ θεῖος κήρυξ ἀναδειχθείς, τῷ Χριστῷ ταύτην ἤγαγες, ἀναγεννήσας βαπτίσματι τῷ σεπτῷ, ἣν καὶ φύλαττε Ὀρθόδοξον.

You have now joined the Apostles, as the Apostles' peer. * For Bulgaria truly * and for all Slavic nations * you were the divine preacher of the Word; * and you brought them to Christ our God, * through holy baptism regenerating them. * Keep them Orthodox forevermore. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις εὐήχοις, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις ἀλαλαγμοῦ. Πᾶσα πνοὴ αἰνεσάτω τὸν Κύριον.

Praise Him with resounding cymbals; praise Him with triumphant cymbals; let everything that breathes praise the Lord. [SAAS]

Τοῦ ἐπὶ γῆς Ἑωσφόρου, φυσιωθέντος δεινῶς, καὶ θρόνον αὐτοῦ θέντος, ὑπεράνω τῶν ἄστρων, πρῶτος σὺ ζηλώσας ὡς Μιχαήλ, ἀνεβόησας ἔνδοξε· Στῶμεν καλῶς στῶμεν πάντες ἐν ταῖς σεπταῖς, τῶν Πατέρων παραδόσεσι.

The Luciferian pontiff became severely puffed up * and set his throne unjustly * above the stars in heaven. * You, O holy Photios, were the first * who, like Michael, cried out with zeal: * "Let us stand well! Let us all stand in the divine * traditions of the holy Fathers!" [SD]

Δόξα.

Ὅπου ἐπικληθῇ σου τὸ ὄνομα φερώνυμε, ἐκεῖθεν τοῦ διαβόλου διώκεται ἡ δύναμις· οὐ φέρει γὰρ τῷ φωτί σου προσβλέπειν ὁ πεσὼν Ἑωσφόρος· διὸ αἰτοῦμέν σε, τὰ πυρφόρα αὐτοῦ βέλη, τὰ καθ' ἡμῶν κινούμενα ἀπόσβεσον, τῇ μεσιτείᾳ σου λυτρούμενος ἡμᾶς, ἐκ τῶν σκανδάλων αὐτοῦ, ἀξιΰμνητε Ἱεράρχα Φώτιε.

Wherever your name is invoked, O namesake of light, the power of the devil is driven away. For he cannot bear to stand in your light, the fallen Lucifer that he is. We therefore beg you to extinguish the fiery arrows that he shoots against us, and by your mediation to deliver us from the scandals he sets, O praiseworthy Hierarch Photios. [SD]

Ἐρευνᾶτε τὰς Γραφάς, καθὼς εἶπεν ἐν Εὐαγγελίοις Χριστὸς ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν· ἐν αὐταῖς γὰρ εὑρίσκομεν αὐτόν, τικτόμενον καὶ σπαργανούμενον, τιθηνούμενον καὶ γαλακτοτροφούμενον, περιτομὴν δεχόμενον, καὶ ὑπὸ Συμεὼν βασταχθέντα, οὐ δοκήσει οὐδὲ φαντασίᾳ, ἀλλ' ἀληθείᾳ τῷ κόσμῳ φανέντα, πρὸς ὃν βοήσωμεν· Ὁ πρὸ αἰώνων Θεός, δόξα σοι.

Search the Scriptures, as Christ our God said in the Gospels, and there we find Him: that He is born and wrapped in swaddling clothes; He nurses at His Mother's breast; and He receives circumcision. He was also held by Symeon. For He came and was seen in the world, not in mere appearance nor as a phantom, but in very truth. So, let us cry out to Him, "O pre-eternal God, glory to You!" [SD]
