Exapostilarion of the 10th Gospel

A

t the Sea of Tiberias * did Peter with Nathaniel * also the sons of Zebedee * and two other disciples and Thomas of old go fishing. * At Christ’s command they let down * the net on the right side and caught * a great number of fish. Rec­ognizing Him, * Peter sprang to meet Him. This was the third time * that He appeared to them, and showed * bread and fish on the charcoals. listen.gif

Theotokion

F

ervently pray the Lord who rose * from the tomb on the third day, * O Virgin, on behalf of those * who sing your praises, Lady, and longingly call you blessed. * We have you as a refuge * where for salvation we all run, * and me­diatrix with Him; for we are yours. * We are your inheritance and your servants, * O Theotokos, and we all * look to you for assistance. listen.gif

fter Your descent into Hades and resurrection from the dead, Your dis­ciples were disheartened as it were for being parted from You, O Christ our God. So unto working they turned once more, and unto the boats and the nets again, and nowhere was there a catch. But You, O Savior, when You appeared, as the Master of all things, did command the nets be cast on the right side of the boat. And straight­away Your word became a deed, and the quantity of the fish was great; and a strange banquet was ready on land. This very banquet of which Your disciples then partook, count us worthy also now to de­light in spiritually, O Lord who love humanity. listen.gif
