Great and Holy Friday
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.
Troparion — Tone 2
The angel came to the myrrh-bearing women at the tomb and said: Myrrh is fitting for the dead, But Christ has shown Himself a stranger to corruption.
Kontakion — Tone 8
Come, let us all sing the praises of Him who was crucified for us,
For Mary said when she beheld Him upon the tree: Though You do endure the cross, You are my Son and my God!
The local Church is the living Body of Christ (1Cor 12:27) that serves to live, uphold, and preach the Faith as delivered by Christ, taught by the Apostles, and preserved in the Holy Scriptures and Tradition of the Holy Orthodox Church. We accomplish this mission by
• participation in liturgical worship, • partaking of the spiritual life and sacraments of the Church, • sharing in Christian fellowship as a eucharistic community, • providing for education of the Faith, • engaging in philanthropy, • being wise stewards of our time, talents, and properties and, • being Christ’s ambassadors (2Cor 5:20) to the world in manifesting His love, presence, and preaching.
