The Scripture ReadingsJohn 21:15-25 Matins Gospel
Holy Apostle Thomas, Troparion, Tone II —
Thou wast a disciple of Christ,/ a member of the divine assembly of the apostles,/ for thou didst make certain of the Resurrection of Christ/ through thy disbelief/ and didst verify His all-pure Passion by thy touch,/ O all-praised Thomas.// Beseech thou now peace and great mercy for us.
Kontakion, Tone IV "Today hast Thou appeared" —
Full of the grace of wisdom,/ the apostle and true servant of Christ cried out to Thee in repentance:// Thou art my Lord and God!
