 Father's Day

Here are some words of wisdom and encouragement as we honor our fathers, grandfathers, godfathers, and father-figures who have left lasting impressions on our lives:

         “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth” (Ephesians 6:2-3).

         “The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him” (Proverbs 20:7).

        “Only after we honor our parents can we do anything good for the rest of mankind. If a person does not honor his parents, he will never treat other people with kindness”  (St. John Chrysostom). 

         If good fathers would strive to give their children a good upbringing, then we would need neither laws, judges, courts, nor punishments (St. John Chrysostom).

         “We must control the children, but softly. Look, I tied up my tomatoes with ribbons.  If I had tied them with wire what would have happened?  Wouldn’t they have been wounded?” (Talks with Elder Paisios). 

         “My father didn’t tell me how to live; He lived and let me watch him do it” (Clarence Kelland).

         “One father is worth more than a hundred schoolmasters” (George Herbert).

 1.RESURRECTION APOLYTIKION (Mode 2)
    When you descended unto death, O Life Immortal,
    then You slayed Hades, with the lightning of Your
    Divinity. And when You also raised the dead out of the  
    nether world, all the powers of heavens were crying out:  
    O Giver of life, Christ our God, glory be to You.

 2. HYMN OF OUR CHURCH (Fourth Mode)
     Today is the beginning of our salvation,
     and the revelation of the mystery of ages.
     The Son of God becomes the Son of the Virgin.
     And Gabriel proclaims this gift from God.
     Together with him we cry out to You,
     O Theotokos: “Hail thou full of grace,
     the Lord is with you.”

 3. KONTAKION (Tone 2)
     A protection of Christians unshamable,
     Intercessor to our Holy Maker, unwavering,
     please reject not the prayerful cries
     of those who are in sin.
     Instead, come to us for you are good;
     your loving help bring unto us,
     who are crying in faith to you:
     Hasten to intercede and speed
     now to supplicate, as a protection for all time,
     Theotokos, for those who honor you.

1. ΑΝΑΣΤΑΣΙΜΟ ΑΠΟΛΥΤΙΚΙΟΝ ( Ηχ. β)
     Ὅτε κατῆλθες πρὸς τὸν θάνατον,
     ἡ ζωὴ ἡ ἀθάνατος, τότε τὸν ἄδην ἐνέκρωσας,
     τῇ ἀστραπῇ τῆς Θεότητος.
     Ὅτε δὲ καὶ τοὺς τεθνεῶτας ἐκ τῶν
     καταχθονίων ἀνέστησας,
     πᾶσαι αἱ Δυνάμεις τῶν ἐπουρανίων ἐκραύγαζον.
     Ζωοδότα Χριστὲ ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, δόξα Σοι.

 2. ΑΠΟΛΥΤΙΚΙΟΝ ΤΟΥ ΝΑΟΥ (Ηχ. δ’)
     Σήμερον τῆς σωτηρίας ἡμῶν τό Κεφάλαιον,
     καί τοῦ ἀπ᾽ αἰῶνος Μυστηρίου ἡ φανέρωσις·
     ὁ Υἱός τοῦ Θεοῦ, Υἱός τῆς Παρθένου γίνεται,
     καί Γαβριήλ τὴν χάριν εὐαγγελίζεται.
     Διό καὶ ἡμεῖς σὺν αὐτῷ τῇ Θεοτόκῳ βοήσωμεν·
     Χαῖρε Κεχαριτωμένη, ὁ Κύριος μετὰ σοῦ.

 3. ΚΟΝΤΑΚΙΟΝ (Ηχ. β)
     Προστασία τῶν Χριστιανῶν ἀκαταίσχυντε,
     μεσιτεία πρὸς τὸν Ποιητὴν ἀμετάθετε,
     μὴ παρίδῃς ἁμαρτωλῶν δεήσεων φωνάς·
     ἀλλὰ πρόφθασον ὡς ἀγαθή,
     εἰς τὴν βοήθειαν ἡμῶν,
     τῶν πιστῶς κραυγαζόντων σοι·
     τάχυνον εἰς πρεσβείαν, καὶ σπεῦσον εἰς ἱκεσίαν,
     ἡ προστατεύουσα ἀεί, Θεοτόκε τῶν τιμώντων σε.
