Syriac: msheeho natareh l’eedtokh
or msheeho natareh l’eedtokh (Abdallah)
On a Sunday Jesus rose in great majesty and might;
having conquered sin and death, he brought sinners back to him
and clothed them with his pure robe of holiness,
out of his great love.
Hosts of heaven, dressed in white, hastened to the tomb at dawn.
They cried out with joy and called people to rejoice.
Let both earth and heaven praise and honor him,
for he has redeemed the world.
On this day we worship him, Jesus Christ, our Lord and God.
He has saved us by his cross and has sealed us with his grace.
He guides us along the way with his pure light
to eternal life.
With the hosts of seraphim, and the ranks of cherubim,
and all of the saints, we join in their hymns of praise.
May the lasting peace of Christ dwell in the world;
may he fill our hearts with love.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.
Jesus Christ our Lord, on this blessed Sunday make us worthy to praise your resurrection with pure hearts and clear consciences. With all the children of your holy Church, we glorify and thank you, your Father, and your Holy Spirit, now and forever.
Let us raise glory, honor, and praise to the good and merciful Lord, who, in his compassion, came down to us and became flesh. He chose to taste death to save us, and he descended to the realm of the dead. By his resurrection, he gave joy to his disciples and gave light to the nations with the light of his salvation. To the Good One be glory and honor, on this blessed Sunday, and all the days of our lives, and forever. Amen.
O Word of God, who can adequately praise you for the depth of your compassion, and what voice can bless you, for you are above all praise? Neither mind nor tongue can describe the wonders you accomplished on Sunday, the day of your resurrection from the dead. And so, with the Psalmist David, we cry out: "This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice in it and be glad."
Now, O Christ our God, we ask you, with the fragrance of this incense which we offer you, to forgive our sins, give peace of mind to those in distress and comfort to those who are anxious. Bring back those who are far and watch over those who are near. Guide the shepherds, sanctify the priests, and purify the deacons. Pardon all sinners and guard the righteous. Protect orphans and help widows. Drive away conflicts and put an end to dissension.
Remember the faithful departed and grant them rest in your heavenly kingdom, that with them we may celebrate that eternal feast. We raise glory to you, to your blessed Father, and to your living Holy Spirit, forever. Amen.

"Sunday is a feast so great!"
Offer praise to the Lord God,
and with angels celebrate.
Blest be God who exalted
Sunday far above all days.
Let the priests read the Gospel;
let us sing our hymns of praise.
A reading from the First Letter of Saint Paul to the Thessalonians. Your blessing, Father.
Glory to the Lord of Paul and the apostles! May the mercy of God descend upon the reader and the listeners and upon this parish and her children forever. Amen.
Brothers and Sisters:
You yourselves know, brothers and sisters, that our coming to you was not in vain, but though we had already suffered and been shamefully mistreated at Philippi, as you know, we had courage in our God to declare to you the gospel of God in spite of great opposition. For our appeal does not spring from deceit or impure motives or trickery, but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the message of the gospel, even so we speak, not to please mortals, but to please God who tests our hearts. As you know and as God is our witness, we never came with words of flattery or with a pretext for greed; nor did we seek praise from mortals, whether from you or from others, though we might have made demands as apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, like a nurse tenderly caring for her own children. So deeply do we care for you that we are determined to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you have become very dear to us. You remember our labor and toil, brothers and sisters; we worked night and day, so that we might not burden any of you while we proclaimed to you the gospel of God. You are witnesses, and God also, how pure, upright, and blameless our conduct was toward you believers. As you know, we dealt with each one of you like a father with his children, urging and encouraging you and pleading that you lead a life worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory. We also constantly give thanks to God for this, that when you received the word of God that you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word but as what it really is, God’s word, which is also at work in you believers.
(1 Thessalonians 2:1-13)
Praise be to God always!
"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice in it and be glad."
Before the proclamation of the Gospel of our Savior, announcing life for our souls, we offer this incense and ask for your mercy, O Lord.
Peace be with you.
And with your spirit.
From the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke, who proclaimed life to the world.
Let us listen to the proclalation of life and salvation for our souls.
Remain silent, O listeners, for the Holy Gospel is about to be proclaimed to you.
Listen and give glory and thanks to the Word of the living God.
The Evangelist wrote:
Now as they went on their way, he entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to what he was saying. But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to him and asked, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me." But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her."
This is the truth! Peace be with you!
Praise and blessings to Jesus Christ, our Lord and God, for giving us his words of life.
