A FRACTION FOR THE RESURRECTION

O Master, Lord, God the Pantocrator, the Father of our


Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ, Who through His
cross descended to hades, and restored our father
Adam and his children to paradise.

He buried us with Him, and through His death He


abolished the power of death, and on the third day He
rose from the dead.

He appeared to Mary Magdalene and spoke with her in


this manner, saying, “Tell My brethren that they go to
Galilee, and there shall they see Me.”
The archangel descended from heaven, rolled the
stone from the door of the tomb, and proclaimed the
good news to the women carrying the spices, saying,
“Christ is risen from the dead, by death trampling upon
Death, and has bestowed life upon those in the tomb.”

He breathed in the face of His saintly disciples and


pure apostles, saying, “Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose
sins you will remit, they are remitted to them, and
those which you will retain, they shall be retained.”

And after forty days, He ascended to the heavens and


sat at the right hand of His good Father, and sent us
the Paraclete, the Spirit of truth, as tongues of fire.
Therefore, we ask You, our Master, purify us from all
hypocrisy, that, with a pure heart, we dare with
boldness, without fear, to entreat You, O God the
Father, Who are in the heavens, and say: Our Father .
