The Beatitudes are included in the Divine Liturgy in Slavic practice, and in Byzantine Monastic practice, the Typika, and in other services. In the context of the Liturgy, this forms the third antiphon.
The Beatitudes begin with a phrase taken from Luke 23:42:
- In Thy kingdom remember us, O Lord, when Thou comest in Thy kingdom.
And then continues with the text of Matthew 5:3-12, and ending with "Glory... Both now..."
In the liturgy, there are troparia that are appointed to be read between these verses, that vary depending on the typikon. These troparia can also read in Typika, when it is done the place of a Liturgy that the Typikon calls for.
When the Typikon does not appoint a liturgy, and Typika is done, the Beatitudes are completed as follows:
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. Both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
- Remember us, O Lord, when Thou comest in Thy kingdom.
- Remember us, O Master, when Thou comest in Thy kingdom.
- Remember us, O Holy One, when Thou comest in Thy kingdom.
- See the texts linked here for examples of these troparia]
