S a t u r d a y o f t h e R a i s i n g o f S t L a z a r o s (F o u r D a y s D e a d ) On Saturday of the Sixth Week of Great Lent, the Holy Church commemorates the Miracle of the Raising of St Lazaros by our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, six days before the Jewish Passover during which He suffered. (JOHN 11:45-57). The Holy Church Glorifies the Raising of St Lazaros, as proof of the Divine Power of Jesus Christ and as evidence of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and in the General Resurrection of all the dead, as expressed in the Troparion of the Feast. The Faithful – realising the great value accomplished by our Lord Commemorates the Divine Miracle by singing: “O Lord, Thy Voice destroyed the kingdom of Hades and the Word of Thine Authority raised from the grave the one who was dead four days, and Lazaros became once again the Saving First Fruits of the Regeneration of the world. All things are possible to Thee, O Master and King of all.” At the same time the Holy Church reminds us also that this Event was the beginning of the resolute revolt of the Council of the Priests and Pharisees against our Saviour. Performed before innumerable witnesses, the Great Miracle of the Resurrection of St Lazaros converted many to the Faith in Jesus Christ, which caused the strongest indignation against Him by the High Priests and Elders of Judah. Consequently the Sanhedrin decided, upon the wicked instigation of the High Priest, Caiaphas, to arrest our Lord Jesus wherever it would be possible, without causing a public riot. (JOHN 11: 47-50) Thus the Miraculous Resurrection of St Lazaros served His enemies as the final excuse for their condemning our Lord and Saviour to death. Since the first century the Divine Services were established to Commemorate this Great Miracle before Holy Week. In the fourth century the Holy Church of Christ considered the Miraculous Resurrection of St Lazaros to be a solemn Feast, which is evident from the set of Homilies for today that were written by St John Chrysostom, the Blessed St Augustine, and others. In the seventh and eighth centuries the Sacred Church Hymnographers – St Andrew of Crete, St Cosmas of Maium and St John of Damascus composed Festal Hymns and Canons for this Feast that are still sung to this day.

In the presence of the people in Bethany, as though Thou did ot know, as Man, Thou sought the place of Thy Friend’s burial.
