SUNDAY OF THE PUBLICAN & THE PHARISEE; THE HOLY HIEROMARTYR CLEMENT, BISHOP OF ANCYRA


RESURRECTIONAL TROPARION - TONE EIGHT:
Thou didst descend from on high, O Merciful One! Thou didst accept the three day burial to free us from our sufferings! O Lord, our Life and Resurrection: Glory to Thee!

TROPARION TO HIEROMARTYR CLEMENT – TONE FOUR:
You sprang up, most holy one, as a branch and stem of holiness, a most sacred flower of the contest of martyrdom and as a most sweet fruit given by God to the faithful. But as one who shared the struggle of the martyrs and the throne of hierarchs, intercede with Christ God that our souls may be saved.

EPISTLE READING

THE PROKIMENON IN THE 8TH TONE:
Pray and make your vows before the Lord our God!


SUNDAY OF THE PUBLICAN & PHARISEE:
2 TIMOTHY 3: 10-15

My son Timothy, you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra - what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

THE ALLELUIA VERSES:
Come let us rejoice in the Lord! Let us make a joyful noise to God our Savior! Let us come before His face with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with psalms!

GOSPEL READING

SUNDAY OF THE PUBLICAN & PHARISEE: LUKE 18: 10-14
Jesus told this parable: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men: extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

FROM THE PROLOGUE

JANUARY 23/FEBRUARY 5 BY ST. NIKOLAI VELIMIROVIC:

The Hieromartyr Clement, Bishop of Ancyra
Clement was born in the year 258 in the city of Ancyra of a pagan father and a Christian mother. His devout mother, Euphrosyne, prophesied that her son would die a martyr’s death; then she herself departed this world when Clement was twelve years old. Her friend Sophia took Clement into her home as a son, and assisted in rearing him with a Christian spirit. Clement was so famous for his virtuous living that he was elected Bishop of Ancyra at the age of twenty. In his youth he attained the wisdom of a mature adult, and by great abstinence he tamed and conquered his body. Clement fed on bread and vegetables only, and did not eat anything butchered or bloody. During the reign of Emperor Diocletian, he was tortured horribly, “as no one had ever been, since the beginning of the world.” He spent twenty-eight years in torments and in dungeons. Eleven different torturers tormented and tortured him. At one time, when they struck him in the face, spat upon him and broke his teeth, he cried out to Domentian, his torturer: “You are doing me great honor, O Domentian, and you are not torturing me, for the mouth of my Lord Jesus Christ was also beaten and struck in like manner—and behold: I, the unworthy one, have now been made worthy of this!” When Clement was brought to Rome before Diocletian, the emperor placed various weapons of torture on one side, and on the other side such gifts as medals, clothing, money and all that the emperor could bestow. Then he told Clement to choose. The martyr of Christ glanced with scorn at all the emperor’s gifts and chose the instruments of torture. Clement was indescribably tortured: piece by piece they removed the flesh from his body, so that the white bones showed beneath the flesh. Healed of these wounds, he was beheaded by a soldier in the church in Ancyra, while he was celebrating the Divine Liturgy as bishop, in the year 312. The miracles of St. Clement are without number.

The Sixth Ecumenical Council
The first session was held in Constantinople during the years 680–681. This Council condemned the Monothelite heresy, which erroneously taught that in Christ there was only one divine will and not a human will. The Council also passed several canons concerning the order and discipline of the clergy.

Saint Paulinus the Merciful
At first, Paulinus was a Roman senator, and afterward a bishop in Nola. He followed the example of his friend, St. Ambrose, and received baptism. Following his baptism, Paulinus withdrew to the Pyrenees Mountains in Spain, where he lived a life of asceticism. But as no lighted lamp can be hidden, so also was St. Paulinus discovered and elected Bishop of Nola. He was a good and merciful shepherd. He reposed peacefully in the year 431. His relics repose in the Church of St. Bartholomew in Rome.

HYMN OF PRAISE: To the Creator
O Infinite Creator, in soul I bow before Thee.
When I speak Thy name I belittle Thee;
With my every thought I belittle Thee.
What is the mind able to think before the open sea of Thy spaciousness?
What can the tongue say when it must remain silent
Before Thine awesome mountains and chasms?
Before Thine immeasurable height and width,
Before Thy plains, slopes, depths and distance—
And nearness, O God, oh yes, even nearness!
And still more miraculous, Thy humble lowliness!
Thou, as a man, didst lower Thyself to our lowliness,
Didst lower and constrain Thyself into a mortal valley,
That Thou mightest raise the valley to the heavenly firmament,
And make worn-out creation new.
Of all Thy qualities, Thy lowliness
Halts my thought. Thou bindest my lips!
What can I think, what can I say
About the hungry, thirsty and crucified God?
What can I say to Thee, O Thou Most-rich,
Who, because of me, becamest the poorest One?
Let the tongue keep silent, let tears speak:
Save, in Thy mercy, what Thy thought has created.

REFLECTION
Compassion has always been a characteristic of a true shepherd of Christ’s flock. In his glorious homilies, St. John Chrysostom did not emphasize or praise anything more strongly than compassion. St. John the Merciful, Patriarch of Alexandria, lamented every day wherein the opportunity was not given him to show compassion to someone. St. Paulinus deserved to be called the Merciful, for he was truly compassionate in the full Christian sense of the word. Once, when the Vandals looted Nola, they took many men into slavery. The Vandal Prince Rig took a certain widow’s only son as a slave. The widow came weeping to her bishop and sought money from him to pay the ransom for her son. Not possessing anything, Bishop Paulinus dressed in the clothes of a simple man and asked the widow to take him before the prince and exchange him for her son. The prince released the widow’s son and took Paulinus with him to Africa—where Paulinus
served as the prince’s gardener until, by God’s providence, he was freed and returned to Nola with the other slaves.

CONTEMPLATION
Contemplate the Lord Jesus as Healer:
1. As a Healer of bodily infirmities;
2. As an Exorcist of evil spirits from the insane;
3. As a Healer of the human spirit and mind, by the light of His divine teaching;
4. As my own Healer of all pains and evils.

HOMILY on the angelic state of the saints
But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world … Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels (Luke 20:35-36).
Thus speaks He Who knows, He Who has seen, and He Who cannot be deceived. Brethren, what have we to doubt anymore? This testimony is clearer than a summer’s noon, harder than diamonds and more precious than all the riches of this world; and this is the testimony: Those who are accounted worthy of that world and resurrection can no longer die, but are immortal like the angels of God.
What are the angels like? Those same angels who appeared at the time of Abraham and came to the aid of men are the same ones who today appear and aid men. They are not dead but alive; they have not grown old but are young. They are the same ones who beheld Adam in Paradise and who will behold the Final Resurrection, and the Judgment, and the Kingdom of the saints.
The righteous are similar to angels. The apostles, prophets, saints and martyrs live even today, and will live always and can no longer die. Hundreds and thousands of years pass, but they can neither die nor age anymore; rather, they are equal unto the angels.
The Lord testified to us in the above words that the righteous will be crowned with immortality, and He demonstrated this by His own Resurrection, and affirmed it through His glorified saints.
O my brethren, let us awaken and labor—to become worthy to obtain that blessed world!
O resurrected and immortal Lord, help us to become worthy of Thine Immortal Kingdom, in which Thou reignest with Thine angels and Thy saints throughout the ages of ages!
To Thee be glory and praise forever. Amen.

THIRTY-SECOND SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST; VENERATION OF THE PRECIOUS CHAINS OF THE HOLY APOSTLE PETER; VENERABLE ROMILUS OF RAVANICA

RESURRECTIONAL TROPARION - TONE SEVEN:
By Thy Cross, Thou didst destroy death! To the thief, Thou didst open Paradise! For the myrrh bearers, Thou didst change weeping into joy! And Thou didst command Thy disciples, O Christ God, to proclaim that Thou art risen, granting the world great mercy!

TROPARION TO THE HOLY APOSTLE PETER – TONE FOUR:
You came to us without leaving Rome, through the precious chains that you wore. First-enthroned of the Apostles, we bow down to them in faith and pray: ‘Through your prayers to God grant us great mercy.’

RESURRECTIONAL KONTAKION - TONE SEVEN:
The dominion of death can no longer hold man captive, for Christ descended, shattering and destroying its powers! Hell is bound, while the prophets rejoice and cry: The Savior has come to those in faith! Enter you faithful into the Resurrection.

KONTAKION TO THE HOLY APOSTLE PETER – TONE TWO:
Christ the Rock radiantly glorifies the Rock of Faith, the first-enthroned of the disciples; He calls us to honor the miracles wrought through Peter’s chains, so that He may grant us forgiveness of our sins.

HYMN TO THE MOTHER OF GOD - TONE SIX:
Steadfast Protectress of Christians and constant advocate before the Creator, do not despise the cry of us sinners; but in your goodness come speedily to help us who call on you in faith. Hasten to hear our petition and to intercede for us, O Theotokos, for you always protect those who honor you!

EPISTLE READING

THE PROKIMENON IN THE 7TH TONE:
The Lord shall give strength to His people! The Lord shall bless His people with peace!

THIRTY-SECOND SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST/SUNDAY BEFORE THE TRIODION: I TIMOTHY 4: 9-15
My son Timothy, this is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance. For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe. These things command and teach. Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.

THE ALLELUIA VERSES:
It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to Your name, O Most High! To declare Your mercy in the morning and Your truth by night!

GOSPEL READING

THIRTY-SECOND SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST/SUNDAY BEFORE THE TRIODION: LUKE 19: 1-10
At that time, Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully. But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, “He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.” Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.” And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

FROM THE PROLOGUE
JANUARY 16/29 BY ST. NIKOLAI VELIMIROVIC:

Saint Peter the Apostle [The Chains of St. Peter]
St. Peter is commemorated on this day because of the chains with which he was shackled by the lawless Herod and which fell from him during the appearance of an angel in prison (Acts 12:7). The chains were preserved by Christians as much for the memory of this great apostle as for their healing power, for many of the sick were healed by touching them, as was case with the apron of the Apostle Paul (Acts 19:12). St. Juvenal, the Patriarch of Jerusalem, gave these chains as a gift to the Empress Eudocia, the exiled wife of the Emperor Theodosius the Younger. She divided them into two and sent one half to the Church of the Holy Apostles in Constantinople and the other half to Rome, to her daughter, Empress Eudoxia, the wife of Valentian. Eudoxia built the Church of St. Peter and placed these chains in it, together with those chains with which Peter was shackled before his death under Emperor Nero.

The Holy Martyrs Speusippus, Eleusippus, Meleusippus and their Grandmother Leonilla.
The three brothers, triplets, Speusippus, Eleusippus and Meleusippus, all suffered for Christ in France during the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius (161–180). At first only Leonilla was a Christian, while her grandsons were heathens. After prolonged counseling on the part of their pious grandmother and the local priest, these three brothers received baptism. Having been baptized, they began with youthful zeal to live a life devoted to their Faith, and with this fervor they destroyed all the idols in the whole vicinity. Accused and brought before the tribunal, they acknowledged their act and openly confessed their
faith in Christ. The judge had them thrown into prison, summoned their grandmother Leonilla, and directed her to go to the prison and counsel her grandsons to deny Christ and worship the idols. Without a word, Leonilla went to the prison—but instead of counseling her grandsons to deny the true Faith, she began to encourage them not to waver, but to endure all torments to the end and to die for Christ. When the judge again questioned them and realized their strengthened steadfastness in the Faith, he condemned them to death. At first, all three of them were hanged on a tree, where they hung “as strings on a harp,” after which they were flogged and finally burned in fire. A certain woman, Jovilla, heartened at the courage of these martyrs, cried out: “I too am a Christian!” The pagans immediately apprehended and beheaded her, together with the elderly Leonilla.

The Venerable Martyr Damaskin of Gabrovo
Damaskin led a life of asceticism at Hilandar Monastery, where he became the abbot. When he sought payment of a debt due to the monastery from some Turks, they persuaded a Moslem woman to enter the house where Damaskin lived. Then those Turks came and, finding this woman, dragged Damaskin before the Cadi [Moslem judge], who then proposed to him: either be hanged or convert to Islam. To this Damaskin responded decisively: “It would be insanity if I, for this transient life, were to purchase eternal death.” He was hanged in the year 1771 in Svishtov. Thus, Damaskin sacrificed his body in order to save his soul. But God’s punishment immediately befell his murderers. While they set out to cross the Danube River in a rowboat, a storm arose and capsized the boat, and they drowned.

The Venerable Romil
Romil was born in Vidin. He was a disciple of St. Gregory of Sinai. He lived a life of asceticism in several monasteries. Constantine Tsamblak lived together with him in the Monastery of Ravanica [Serbia]. St. Romil reposed in the Lord in about the year 1375, at Ravanica Monastery.

HYMN OF PRAISE: Saint Leonilla
Leonilla, a grandmother aged,
By the Spirit was made as powerful as a lioness.
When she had prepared her grandsons for God,
She herself became a martyr.
The tribune screamed to Leonilla,
Hissing with bitter anger:
“Go, Grandmother, to the dungeon
And counsel your grandsons.
Counsel them to deny
The so-called Christ God.
Either they renounce Christ
Or they renounce their young lives.”
Leonilla, in the dungeon,
To her grandsons spoke:
“Do not be afraid of worldly powers,
Even though they burn you alive.
Cleave to the glorious Christ
And His Gospel.
For you He has prepared
An eternity of radiance and joy.
Do not be afraid of bitter wounds,
For they shall pass. Neither be afraid of death—
Death can neither hide not annihilate
Those who are faithful to Christ.”
Three grandsons, in the midst of the fire,
Offered up praise to God,
While the evil one beheaded
Their dear grandmother Leonilla.

REFLECTION
Nothing crushes human pride as does habitual obedience toward elders. In ancient Sparta, obedience was considered a great virtue. It is said that a Spartan soldier, who was rushing into battle armed with a sword, caught up with his enemy. At the precise moment when the Spartan was about to slay him, the trumpet sounded to end the fighting, and he replaced his sword in the sheath. When someone who saw this asked him, “Why did you not slay the enemy?” he replied, “It is better to obey the commander than to slay the enemy.” Christian obedience differs from this Spartan obedience in that it is voluntary and has as its goal the salvation of the soul, i.e., it is not for the preservation of an earthly kingdom but rather for obtaining the Heavenly Kingdom. St. John the Dwarf began his ascetic life with a certain elder of Thebes. In order to teach his disciple obedience, the elder planted a withered tree in the ground and ordered his disciple to water it daily. For three years, and without murmuring, John watered this withered tree until it finally turned green and brought forth fruit. This is the fruit of unmurmuring obedience. The Crucified Lord Himself became obedient unto death (Philippians 2:8).

CONTEMPLATION
Contemplate the peace of the Lord Jesus:
1. The peace which He carried in His soul—the only perfect Peace-bearer;
2. The peace which He created among men—the only perfect Peacemaker;
3. The peace which He gave to His disciples—the only perfect Peace-giver.

HOMILY on how we are all free only if we are slaves of Christ
For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ’s servant (I Corinthians 7:22).
The great news that Christianity daily announces to the world is that a thing is evaluated at its full value not according to its external appearance, but by its essence. Evaluate things not according to their color and shape but according to their meaning. Evaluate a man not by his position and property but by his heart—in which his feelings, his reason and his will are united.
According to this (which is always a new teaching for the world), he who is outwardly enslaved is not a slave, and he who possesses outward physical freedom is not free. According to worldly understanding, a slave is one who enjoys the world the least, and a
free man is one who enjoys the world the most. According to Christian understanding, a slave is one who enjoys the least from the living Christ, while a free man is one who enjoys the most from the living Christ. Further, according to worldly understanding, a slave is one who carries out his own will less frequently and the will of others more frequently, while a free man is one who carries out his own will more often and the will of others less often. However, according to Christian understanding, a slave is one who carries out his own will more often and the will of God less often, while a free man is one who carries out the will of God more frequently and his own will less frequently. To be a slave of the Lord is the only true and worthy freedom of man—and to be a slave to the world and to one’s self, to sin and vice, is the only fatal slavery. A man might think of kings on their thrones: are there any men on earth more free? Yet, many kings were the most base and the most unworthy slaves of the earth. Of shackled Christians in the dungeons, a man might think: are there any slaves on earth more miserable? However, the Christian martyrs in the prisons felt like free men, and they were filled with spiritual joy! They chanted Psalms and raised up prayers of gratitude to God. Freedom that is tied to grief and sorrow is not freedom, but slavery. Only freedom in Christ is tied to unspeakable joy. Lasting joy is the mark of true freedom.
O Lord Jesus, the only Good Lord, Who grantest us freedom when Thou bindest us more strongly to Thyself, make us Thy slaves as soon as possible, that we would cease to be slaves of cruel and unmerciful masters.
To Thee be glory and praise forever. Amen.
