Ephesians 5:9-19

     9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. 15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;


Matthew 18:10-20

     10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. 11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. 12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? 13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. 14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. 15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. 18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

HOLY MARTYR HERMIAS OF CAPPADOCIA
SS WINNOW, MANCUS AND MYRBAD, MONKS

Troparion of St Hermias    Tone 4
Enlisted for Christ the King of all,/ thou didst hew down the enemy ranks, O glorious Hermias./ After enduring many torments in thine old age/ thou didst contest as God's warrior./ Intercede with Him, O trophy-bearer, that all may be saved.

Troparion of Ss Winnow, Mancus and Myrbad    Tone 6
O three holy Saints who in honour of the Trinity/ left Ireland to labour in Cornwall:/ having toiled on earth you are glorified in heaven,/ blessed Winnow, Mancus and Myrbad.

Kontakion of St Hermas    Tone 3
Thou didst steadfastly confess the Name of Christ/ and endure grievous torments, O Hermias,/ and vanquish the ancient foe./ With an aged body,/ in thy youthful ardour thou didst attain to the joys of Paradise.
