In Memoriam:  Forget not the Coptic Christians who face martyrdom for the Faith in Christ and willingness to suffer him.  Today Coptic Christians were killed for simply attending Church on Palm Sunday by bombing, at St Mark’s in Alexandria and St George’s in Tanta.   St Anthony of Egypt, St John the Merciful, St Mary of Egypt, St Cyril of Alexandria pray for the Christians in Egypt and all the Middle East.  And for the conversion of those who do such heinous acts.  (Editor)

Troparion of Palm Sunday, Tone 4

O Christ God, when we were buried with Thee in Baptism, we became deserving of Thy Resurrection to immortal life. Wherefore, we praise Thee, crying: Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord.

Kontakion of Palm Sunday, Tone 6

Upborne upon the heavenly throne, and seated upon the earthly foal, O Christ our God, receive the praises of angels and the hymns of men, exclaiming before Thee: Blessed is He that cometh to restore Adam.

Behold, the Bridegroom comes at midnight,

And blessed is that servant whom He shall find watching,

And again, unworthy is the servant whom He shall find heedless.

Beware, therefore, O my soul, do not be weighed down with sleep,

Lest you be given up to death, and lest you be shut out of the Kingdom.

But rouse yourself crying: Holy, Holy, Holy, art Thou, O our God,

Through the Theotokos have mercy on us.
