Saints and Feasts: James the Apostle, son of Alphaeus

October 9

Reading:

 

The holy Apostle James was one of the Twelve, and preached Christ to many nations, and finally suffered death by crucifixion.

 

Apolytikion in the Third Tone

O Holy Apostle James, intercede to our merciful God, that He may grant our souls forgiveness of sins.

Kontakion in the Fourth Tone

The wondrous fisherman that caught in the nations, James, the most ven’rable of Jesus’ disciples, and the companion of the apostolic choir, doth dispense unto the world the great wealth of his healings, freeing from adversities them that rightly acclaim him. Wherefore, we cry to him with one accord: O blest Apostle, save all of us by thy prayers.
