Meatfare Sunday
of the Last Judgment
Tone 1

Readings

1 Corinthians 8:8-9:2 (Epistle)
Matthew 25:31-46 (Gospel)

Troparion (Tone 7)

By Thy Cross Thou didst destroy death.
To the thief Thou didst open Paradise.
For the Myrrhbearers Thou didst change weeping into joy,

and Thou didst command Thy disciples, O Christ God,
to proclaim that Thou art risen,
granting the world great mercy.

Kontakion (Tone 1)

When Thou, O God, shalt come to earth with glory,
all things shall tremble,
and the river of fire shall flow before Thy judgment seat;
the books shall be opened, and the hidden things disclosed;
then deliver me from the unquenchable fire,
and make me worthy to stand at Thy right hand,
O Righteous Judge!
