2 Timothy 3:16-4:4

     All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Luke 19:45-48

     And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought; Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves. And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him, And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.

Troparion    Tone 8
Having conquered the ragings of the flesh through abstinence/  the Martyrs of Christ received grace to heal the weak;/ and while living after death they worked miracles./ It is truly a strange wonder that bare bones pour forth healings!/ Glory to our God.

Kontakion    Tone 1
With sacred hymns let us honour wondrous Menas,/ divine Hermogenes and Eugraphus;/ for they honoured the Lord and suffered for Him./ They attained to the bodiless choirs in heaven and shower miracles upon us.
