LITURGY

Romans 3:19-26

     19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.



Matthew 7:1-8

     1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. 6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. 7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

ST ONUPHRIOS THE GREAT OF EGYPT AND ST PETER OF MOUNT ATHOS
ST TERNAN

Troparion of Ss Onuphrios and Peter    Tone 1
In the flesh you lived the life of Angels,/ you were citizens of the desert and treasuries of grace,/ O Onuphrios adornment of Egypt, and Peter the light of Athos./ Wherefore we honour your struggles as we sing to you:/ Glory to Him Who has strengthened you; glory to Him Who has made you wonderful;/ glory to Him Who through you works healings for all.

Troparion of St Ternan    Tone 5
At Candida Casa among the throng of saints/ the flame of faith enkindled thee, O Ternan./ Thy missionary labours among the Picts have shone with glory/ as did thy monastery of Culross in Fife./ Pray to Christ our God to save our souls.

Kontakion of Ss Onuphrios and Peter    Tone 8
By your achievements in the wilderness you became like the Bodiless Powers,/ godly Onuphrios, and righteous Peter adornment of Athos/ you heavenly-minded pair who sing: Alleluia.
