Philippians 2:12-16

     Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Troparion of St Thomas    Tone 2
Thou wast a disciple of Christ and one of the Twelve,/ and by thy unbelief didst proclaim Christ's Resurrection./ By touch thou wast assured of His holy Passion,/ O glorious Apostle Thomas./ Pray to Him to grant us peace and mercy.

Troparion of St Lalluwy    Tone 8

To this day Menheniot's sacred well witnesses to thy virtue, O Pius Lalluwy./ As thou didst call forth a stream of living water from the earth,/ we pray thee, entreat Christ our God to pour forth for us/ the saving waters of eternal life.

Kontakion of St Thomas    Tone 4

The grace-filled Apostle and true servant of Christ/ cried out in repentance:/ Thou art my Lord and my God.

Luke 6:24-30

     But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets. But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also. Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
