      Four remarks:

      1. Shouldn't the kontakion at both the 3rd and
      the 6th hour be of the Holy Fathers, this being a
      vigil-rank service?

      2. In the sixth troparion of the resurrection at the Beatitudes,

      > 6. O ye faithful, let us entreat Him who
      >hath risen from the dead, hath made
      > captive the dominion of hades, and wast
      >seen by the myrrh-bearing women and
      > said to them: “Rejoice!, that He deliver
      >from corruption the souls of us
      > who ever cry out to Him with the voice of
      >the noble thief: Remember us also
      in Thy kingdom!

      the clause "...that He deliver..." is so far
      removed from the "let us entreat" that it
      encumbers the meaning, especially when the
      sentence is read aloud. A somewhat less disparate
      syntax may be clearer:

      > 6. Him Who hath risen from the dead, hath
      >made captive the dominion of hades,
      and wast seen by the myrrh-bearing women
      and said to them: “Rejoice!" -- let us
      entreat, O ye faithful, that He deliver from
      corruption
      > the souls of us who ever cry out to Him
      >with the voice of the noble thief: Remember us
      >also
      in Thy kingdom!

      3. At the Entrance: Troparia of the Resurrection
      and the Holy Fathers, then Glory-Both Now, then
      the kontakion of the Holy Fathers.

      4. The Epistle

      >Instead of: "Brethren: By faith he sojourned in
      >the land of promise..." - "Brethren: By faith
      >Abraham sojourned in the land of promise..."
