Beginning of the Lenten Triodion
- 2 Timothy 3:10-15
- Luke 18:10-14
Troparion (Tone 5)
Let us, the faithful, praise and worship the Word, co-eternal with the Father and the Spirit, born for our salvation from the Virgin; for He willed to be lifted up on the Cross in the flesh, to endure death, and to raise the dead by His glorious Resurrection.
Kontakion (Tone 4)
Let us flee from the pride of the Pharisee! Let us learn humility from the Publican's tears! Let us cry to our Savior: “Have mercy on us, O only merciful One!”
