5 EPISTLE Hebrews 2:14-22 B rethren, Christ is our peace, who has made us both one, and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby bringing the hostility to an end. And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near; for through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. GOSPEL Luke 10:25-37 A t that time, a lawyer stood up to put Jesus to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" He said to him, "What is written in the law? How do you read?" And he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself." And he said to him, "You have answered right; do this, and you will live." But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" Jesus replied, "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was; and when he saw him, he had compassion, and went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; then he set him on his own beast and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, 'Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.' Which of these three, do you think, proved neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?" He said, "The one who showed mercy on him." And Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."

6 Variable Sunday Liturgy Hymns Ἀπολυτίκιον Ἀναστάσιμον Κατέλυσας τῷ Σταυρῷ σου τὸν θάνατον, ἠνέῳξας τῷ Λῃστῇ τὸν Παράδεισον, τῶν Μυροφόρων τὸν θρῆνον μετέβαλες, καὶ τοῖς σοῖς Ἀποστόλοις κηρύττειν ἐπέταξας ὅτι ἀνέστης Χριστὲ ὁ Θεός, παρέχων τῷ κόσμῳ τὸ μέγα ἔλεος. Τῶν Μαρτύρων Τὰ θαύματα τῶν Ἁγίων σου Μαρτύρων, τεῖχος ἀκαταμάχητον ἡμῖν δωρησάμενος, Χριστὲ ὁ Θεός, ταῖς αὐτῶν ἱκεσίαις, βουλὰς Ἐθνῶν διασκέδασον, τῆς Βασιλείας τὰ σκῆπτρα κραταίωσον, ὡς μόνος ἀγαθὸς καὶ φιλάνθρωπος. Του Ναού Κανόνα πίστεως και εικόνα πραότητος, εγκρατείας διδάσκαλον, ανέδειξέ σε τη ποίμνη σου, η των πραγμάτων αλήθεια δια τούτο εκτήσω τη ταπεινώσει τα υψηλά, τη πτωχεία τα πλούσια, Πάτερ Ιεράρχα Νικόλαε, πρέσβευε Χριστώ τω Θεώ, σωθήναι τας ψυχάς ημών. Κοντάκιον Ὁ καθαρώτατος ναὸς τοῦ Σωτῆρος, ἡ πολυτίμητος παστὰς καὶ Παρθένος, τὸ ἱερὸν θησαύρισμα τῆς δόξης τοῦ Θεοῦ, σήμερον εἰσάγεται, ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ Κυρίου, τὴν χάριν συνεισάγουσα, τὴν ἐν Πνευματι Θείῳ ἣν ἀνυμνοῦσιν Ἄγγελοι Θεοῦ Αὕτη ὑπάρχει σκηνὴ ἐπουράνιος. Resurrectional Apolytikion By means of Your Cross, O Lord, You abolished death. To the robber You opened Paradise. The lamentation of the myrrhbearing women You transformed, and You gave Your Apostles the order to proclaim to all that You had risen, O Christ our God, and granted the world Your great mercy. For the Martyrs You have given us the miracles of Your holy Martyrs as an impregnable wall, O Christ our God. At their entreaties, frustrate the plots of enemy nations, and strengthen our government, for You alone are good and love humanity. Apolytikion of St. Nicholas As rule of the faith and picture of gentleness, and teacher of temperance you were exhibited to your flock, by the truth of the evidence, Thus you acquired the lofty through humility, abundance through poverty. Father and Hierarch Nicholas, intercede with Christ our God, that our souls may be saved. Kontakion The Savior's most pure and immaculate temple, the very precious bridal chamber and Virgin, who is the sacred treasure of the glory of God, on this day is introduced into the House of the Lord, and with herself she brings the grace in the divine Spirit. She is extolled by the Angels of God. A heavenly tabernacle is she.
7 MATTHEW THE APOSTLE & EVANGELIST This Apostle, who was also called Levi, was the son of Alphaeus and had Galilee as his homeland. A publican before being called by Christ, he became one of the Twelve Apostles, and an Evangelist. While still in Palestine, he wrote his Gospel first in Hebrew, being also the first of all to write the Gospel. Often when he is depicted in icons, there is portrayed next to him the likeness of a man, one of the symbolic living creatures mentioned by Ezekiel (1.10), which, as Saint Irenaeus writes, is a symbol of our Savior's Incarnation. ΑΓΙΟΣ ΜΑΤΘΑΙΟΣ ΑΠΟΣΤΟΛΟΣ ΚΑΙ ΕΥΑΓΓΕΛΙΣΤΗΣ Ο Απόστολος και Ευαγγελιστής Ματθαίος, πριν γίνει μαθητής του Κυρίου Ιησού Χριστού, ονομαζόταν Λευίς. Ο πατέρας του λεγόταν Αλφαίος και ήταν από τη Γαλιλαία. Ο Ματθαίος έκανε το επάγγελμα του τελώνη, και ο Ιησούς τον βρήκε να κάθεται στο τελωνείο έξω από την Καπερναούμ. Και είπε προς αυτόν: «Ἀκολούθει μοι». Ο Ματθαίος, χωρίς καμιά καθυστέρηση, αμέσως τον ακολούθησε. Και όχι μόνο εγκατέλειψε το αμαρτωλό - για την εποχή εκείνη - επάγγελμα του τελώνη, αλλά και με χαρά φιλοξένησε τον Κύριο στο σπίτι του. Εκεί, μάλιστα, ήλθαν και πολλοί τελώνες και άλλοι αμαρτωλοί άνθρωποι, με τους οποίους ο Ιησούς συνέφαγε και συζήτησε. Οι φαρισαίοι, όμως, που είχαν πωρωμένη συνείδηση, όταν είδαν αυτή την ενέργεια του Κυρίου, αμέσως τον κατηγόρησαν ότι συντρώγει με τελώνες και αμαρτωλούς. Ο Ιησούς το άκουσε και είπε εκείνα τα θαυμάσια λόγια: «Οὐ γὰρ ἦλθον καλέσαι δικαίους, ἀλλὰ ἁμαρτωλοὺς εἰς μετάνοιαν» (Ματθαίου, θ' 13). Δηλαδή, λέει ο Κύριος, δεν ήλθα για να καλέσω εκείνους που νομίζουν τους εαυτούς τους δίκαιους, αλλά ήλθα Saints and Feasts να καλέσω τους αμαρτωλούς, για να μετανοήσουν και να σωθούν. Στο Ματθαίο οφείλει η Εκκλησία μας το πρώτο κατά σειρά στην Καινή Διαθήκη Ευαγγέλιο, που γράφτηκε το 64 μ.χ. Ο Ματθαίος κατά την παράδοση κήρυξε το Ευαγγέλιο στην Αιθιοπία, όπου και πέθανε μαρτυρικά. THE ENTRANCE OF THE THEOTOKOS INTO THE TEMPLE According to the tradition of the Church, the Theotokos was brought to the Temple at three years of age, where she was consecrated to God and spent her days until she was fourteen or fifteen years old; and then, as a mature maiden, by the common counsel of the priests (since her parents had reposed some three years before), she was betrothed to Joseph. ΕΙΣΟΔΙΑ ΤΗΣ ΘΕΟΤΟΚΟΥ Η ευσεβής Άννα σύζυγος του Ιωακείμ, πέρασε τη ζωή της χωρίς να μπορέσει να τεκνοποιήσει, καθώς ήταν στείρα. Μαζί με τον Ιωακείμ προσευχόταν θερμά στον Θεό να την αξιώσει να φέρει στον κόσμο ένα παιδί, με την υπόσχεση ότι θα αφιέρωνε το τέκνο της σε Αυτόν. Πράγματι, ο Πανάγαθος Θεός όχι μόνο της χάρισε ένα παιδί, αλλά την αξίωσε να φέρει στον κόσμο τη γυναίκα που θα γεννούσε το Μεσσία, το Σωτήρα μας Ιησού Χριστό. Όταν η Παναγία έγινε τριών χρόνων, σύμφωνα με την παράδοση, η Άννα και ο Ιωακείμ, κρατώντας την υπόσχεσή τους, την οδήγησαν στο Ναό και την παρέδωσαν στον αρχιερέα Ζαχαρία. Ο αρχιερέας παρέλαβε την Παρθένο Μαρία και την οδήγησε στα Άγια των Αγίων, όπου δεν έμπαινε κανείς εκτός από τον ίδιο, επειδή γνώριζε έπειτα από αποκάλυψη του Θεού το μελλοντικό ρόλο της Αγίας κόρης στην ενανθρώπιση του Κυρίου. Στα ενδότερα του Ναού η Παρθένος Μαρία έμεινε δώδεκα χρόνια. Όλο αυτό το διάστημα ο αρχάγγελος Γαβριήλ προμήθευε την Παναγία με τροφή ουράνια. Εξήλθε από τα Άγια των Αγίων, όταν έφθασε η ώρα του Θείου Ευαγγελισμού.

10 If we have the faith to dive in head-first. Our Epiphany celebration draws attention from around the world. But at the root of this holy day is a baptism. In baptism, submergence in water represents death to the old ways of sin, and what follows is a resurrection a rebirth to a new life in Christ. While Orthodox Christians are baptized only once, as a community we commemorate Christ s baptism every year. What better time to renew your life in Christ? What better way than through stewardship? We are stewards of the first catch.
