Icons: Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ Pantocrator
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God,
have mercy on me , a sinner.
We reverance thy spotless icon,
O gracious Lord,
and ask forgiveness of our transgressions,
O Christ Our God;
for by thine own good will
thou wast pleased to ascend
the cross in the flesh,
that thou might deliver those
in boundage to the enemy,
those whom thou hast fashioned.
wherefore, we cry aloud onto thee,
thou hast filled all things with joy,
O our Savior,
for thou didst come to save the world.
on The Good Samaritian
For personal veneration. In the earliest illustrated
Gospels and in continuing manuscript illustration
tradition, The Good Samaritan is always depicted
as Jesus with the crossed halo.
We venerate Your most pure image, O Good One,
and ask forgiveness of our transgressions, O Christ God.
Of Your own will You were pleased
to ascend the Cross in the flesh
to deliver Your creatures from bondage to the Enemy.
Therefore with thanksgiving we cry aloud to You:
“You have filled all with joy, O our Savior,
by coming to save the world.”
