Maronite Year LIV

Sixth Sunday of Pentecost
1 Corinthians 12:12-13, 27-30; Matthew 10:16-25

God made hosts of angels ranked in orders of fire,
and Seraphim crying, Holy, Holy, Holy!
For He said, Let there be light, and the light was good.
Thus He has blessed this day with the Spirit of joy,
for through His resurrection He formed His true Church,
His martyrs and virgins marching in ranks of fire,
nations beyond all count singing hymns before Him,
splendid in light and glory.

As a body is one despite its many parts,
as all the parts together form one whole body,
so by the Spirit we are united as one,
sharing without division one baptism and one hope.

This is the day of light; let us praise, let us thank,
let us magnify our Savior, Lord Jesus Christ,
who through His love for us saved us and set us free,
dying upon the Cross and rising from the Tomb.
At the end of days, He will come with hosts of fire,
overthrowing darkness and judging nations;
make us worthy to rejoice with Your holy saints,
one Church united with love.
