Sunday of the Paralytic

Kontakion — Tone 3

By Your divine intercession, O Lord, / as You raised up the paralytic of old, / so raise up my soul, paralyzed by sins and thoughtless acts; / so that being saved I may sing to You: / “Glory to Your power, O compassionate Christ!”

Apostle Carpus of the Seventy

Holy Apostles Carpus and Alphaeus, / entreat the merciful God / to grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.
