Our Melkite Church in America needs you! Without your 
generous support of the Bishop‟s Appeal many vital works of our Church, such as— 
seekingand training new priests and deacons to serve our people, publishing
magazine,fostering spiritual renewal throughout our Eparchy, caring for our aging and ailing clergy,and preparing our young people for church leadership
will not be able to beaccomplished. That is why Bishop Nicholas asks
for 100% participation by everyMelkite family in our Eparchy
and that every Melkite household in the U.S.
give at least$100-$200 each year
to support our Eparchy in America. Christ relies upon
generosity to accomplish His great work! Please respond to our Bishop‟s call and take
 personal responsibility for 
Melkite Eparchy.

Resurrectional Troparion Tone 2Troparion of the Apostle James
Brother of Our Lord Tone 8
Holy James, as a disciple of the Lord, you received the Gospel; as a martyr, youdisplayed an unyielding will; as a brother of the Lord, you have special power withHim; as pontiff, you have the right to intercession. Intercede therefore with Christ Godthat He may save our souls.
Troparion of St. Joseph Tone 2Kontakion
“O Never Failing…”
(Tone 1) Ps.32: 22, 1
My strength and my courage is the Lord, and He has been my Savior.Stichon: The Lord has chastised me through His teaching, yet He has not delivered me to death.
Reading from Second the Epistle of St. Paul to the
BRETHREN, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus, Who is blessed forever, knows that I do not lie. InDamascus, the Governor under King Aretas was guarding the city of the Damascenes in order to arrestme, but I was lowered in a basket through a window in the wall, and escaped his hands.(12: 1) It is not fitting for me to boast: but I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. I know aman in Christ who fourteen years ago (whether in the body, I do not know, or out of the body, I do notknow: God knows) was caught up into paradise and heard secret sayings that man may not repeat. Of such a man I will boast; but of myself I will glory in nothing except my weaknesses. For if I do wish to boast, I shall not be foolish, for I shall be speaking the truth. But I give up, lest any man have an ideaof me beyond what he sees in me or hears from me. And lest the greatness of the revelation puff me up,there was given to me a thorn for the flesh, a messenger of Satan to buffet me. Concerning this, I
 begged the Lord three times that it might leave me, but He said to me, “My grace is enough for you, for strength is made perfect in weakness.” Gladly, then, will I glory in my weaknesses, that the strength of 
Christ may dwell in me.
(Tone 1) Ps.17: 48, 50
The Lord shall hear you on the day of distress; the name of the God of Jacob shall defend you.Stichon: O Lord, save Your king and listen to us on whatever day we call upon You.
The Holy Gospel according to St. Luke
At that time when Jesus came to the country of the Gerasenes there met Him a certain man who for along time was possessed by a devil, and wore no clothes, and lived in the tombs, not in a house. And
when he saw Jesus, he fell down before Him, and crying out with a loud voice said, “What have I to do
