Venerable Gregory Decapolites (816).
St. Proclus, archbishop of Constantinople (447).

Luke 18:15-17, 26-30

15

Then they also brought infants to Him that He might touch them; but when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them.

16

But Jesus called them to Him and said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.

17

Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.

26

And those who heard it said, “Who then can be saved?”

27

But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”

28

Then Peter said, “See, we have left all and followed You.”

29

So He said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God,

30

who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life.

Luke 18:31-34

31

Then He took the twelve aside and said to them, “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of Man will be accomplished.

32

For He will be delivered to the Gentiles and will be mocked and insulted and spit upon.

33

They will scourge Him and kill Him. And the third day He will rise again.

34

But they understood none of these things; this saying was hidden from them, and they did not know the things which were spoken.
