31st Sunday after Pentecost - St. Macarius the Great
John 20:11-18 - 8th Matins Gospel
Colossians 3:12-16
Luke 18:35-43

Troparion: Dweller of the desert and angel in the body / you were shown to be a wonder-worker, our God-bearing Father Macarius. / You received heavenly gifts through fasting, vigil, and prayer: / healing the sick and the souls of those drawn to you by faith. / Glory to Him who gave you strength! / Glory to Him who granted you a crown! / Glory to Him who through you grants healing to all

The life of St. Macarius can be found here, and a meditation on his sayings can be found here.
