BEHOLD, I APPROACH FOR HOLY COMMUNION. O Creator, burn me not as I partake; for Thou art Fire, which burns the unworthy. Wherefore, cleanse me from every stain. RECEIVE ME TODAY, O SON OF GOD, as a Partaker of Thy Mystical Feast; for I will not speak of the Mystery to Thine enemies; I will not kiss Thee as did Judas, but as the Thief, I will confess Thee: Lord, remember me in Thy Kingdom! TREMBLE, O MORTAL, BEHOLDING THE DIVINE BLOOD. For it is as a lighted coal burning the unworthy. It is God’s Body and Deifies and Nourishes me. It Deifies my soul, and wondrously Nourishes my mind. THOU HAS SMITTEN ME WITH YEARNING, O CHRIST, and with Thy Divine Love Thou has changed me; but burn away with Spiritual Fire my sins, and make me worthy to be filled with the Joy of Thee; so that rejoicing in Thy Goodness, I may magnify Thy Two Presences. INTO THE MAGNIFICENCE OF THY SAINTS, HOW SHALL I, THE UNWORTHY, ENTER? For should I dare to enter the Festal Chamber, my Robe betrays me, for it is not a Festal Garment, and I shall be bound and cast out by the Angels. Cleanse my soul, O Lord, from pollution, and by Thy Compassion Save me. O MERCIFUL MASTER, LORD JESUS CHRIST MY GOD, LET NOT THESE HOLY GIFTS BE UNTO ME FOR JUDGEMENT THROUGH MY UNWORTHINESS, but rather for the Purification and Sanctification of my soul and body, and as an Earnest of the Life and Kingdom to come. For it is good for me to cleave unto God and to place in the Lord hope of my Salvation. RECEIVE ME TODAY, O SON OF GOD, as a Partaker of Thy Mystical Feast; for I will not speak of the Mystery to Thine enemies; I will not kiss Thee as did Judas, but as the Thief I confess Thee: Lord, remember me in Thy Kingdom!

the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His Benefits: He Forgives all your iniquities; He Heals all your afflictions; He Redeems your life from destruction: He Crowns you with Mercy and Compassion; He Fills your life with Good Things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The Lord secures Righteousness and Justice for all who are oppressed. He made known His Ways to Moses and His Deeds to the Children of Israel. Merciful and Gracious is the Lord; slow to anger, and abounding in Mercy. He will not always reprimand us, nor will He keep His Wrath forever. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor does He punish us according to our crimes. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so exceeding is His Mercy towards those who Fear Him; as far as the East is from the West, so far has He removed our transgressions from us! As a father has compassion for his children, so the Lord has Compassion for those who Fear4 Him. For He knows how we were formed; He remembers that we are sand. Man’s days are like those of the grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes; the wind sweeps over him and he is gone, and the place remembers him no longer. But the Mercy of the Lord is from Eternity to Eternity for those who fear Him; and His Righteousness towards children’s children of those

No one who is bound with the desires and pleasures of the flesh is worthy to approach, or draw near, or to serve Thee, O King of Glory; for to serve Thee is great and awesome, even to the Heavenly Powers. Yet, through Thine ineffable and boundless Love towards mankind, Thou unchangeably and immutably became Man, and served as our High Priest, and as Lord of All, has committed to us the celebration of this Liturgical and bloodless Sacrifice. For Thou alone, O Lord our God, rules over all things in Heaven and Earth, Who art borne upon the Throne of the Cherubim, Who art the Lord of the Seraphim and King of Israel, Who alone art Holy and rest amongst Thy Saints. Wherefore, I implore Thee, Who alone art Good, and ready to listen: Look down upon me, Thy sinful and unprofitable servant, and cleanse my soul and my heart from an evil conscience; and enable me by the Power of Thy Holy Spirit, Vested with the Grace of the Priesthood, to stand before this, Thy Holy Altar, and Consecrate Thy Holy and Immaculate Body and Precious Blood. For to Thee I come, having bowed my head, and beseech Thee: Turn not Thy Face away from me, nor reject me from among Thy Children; but make me worthy, Thy sinful and unworthy servant, to offer these Gifts to Thee. For Thou art the Offerer and the Offered, the Accepted and the Distributed, O Christ our God, § and unto Thee we ascribe glory, together with Thine Eternal Father, and Thine All Holy, Good, and Life-giving Spirit; now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Moses and Elias stood by You confirming that Thou art truly the Lord of both the living and the dead. And they doxologized17 Thine Ineffable Mercy and Dispensation, and Thy Great Condescension by which Thou has saved the wold that was lost in transgressions and perishing in sin. Him with tuneful cymbals; praise Him with loud cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Thy Disciples were with Thee, the Voice of the Father explicitly declared Thee as His own Beloved Son, of the same Essence, sharing the same Throne, in Whom He is well pleased, O Thou Who from a Virgin Cloud were Born, becoming Flesh, and were Transfigured, O Sovereign Lord, upon Mount Tabor, encompassed by a brightly shining Cloud. Wherefore Peter said in astonishment: “O Master, it is good that we are here!” not knowing what he said, O Benefactor rich in Mercy.

Amen § Remembering

Make The Sign Of The Cross & Bow Down
18 THE CONGREGATION SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN THE COMMUNAL WORSHIP AND PRAYERS OF THE LITURGY BY SINGING WITH THE CHOIR AND RESPONDING TO THE PETITIONS OFFERED BY THE PRIEST, AND BY MAKING THE SIGN OF THE CROSS AND BOWING WHEN NECESSARY. WE DO NOT, HOWEVER, SING OR RECITE THE PRIEST’S PORTIONS OF THE HOLY SERVICE. ORTHODOX CHRISTIANS STAND THROUGHOUT THE HOLY SERVICES IN ORDER TO WORSHIP PROPERLY AND WITH THE DEEPEST RESPECT FOR GOD. IF YOU NEED TO SIT, YOU MAY DO SO DURING CERTAIN SECTIONS OF THE LITURGY BUT ONLY ON THE EDGE OF THE PEW OR CHAIR – NOT WITH A RELAXED, CASUAL ATTITUDE, WHICH SHOWS A LACK OF RESPECT AND A DISREGARD FOR GOD AND YOUR FELLOW WORSHIPPERS. ALWAYS BE AWARE OF THE DIVINE PRESENCE OF GOD IN HIS HOLY TEMPLE. TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST – 6 AUGUST
