Prayers

Apolytikion: Though thou didst bud forth from a renowned and notable root, and though thou didst blossom from a City famed for her great imperial dignity, yet didst thou scorn all things as corruptible and fleeting, striving to be joined to Christ thy Master for ever. Entreat Him, O Alexios most wise, fervently for our Souls.

Kontakion: As we celebrate today with fitting reverence the all-Holy festival of Saint Alexios the all-blest, with hymns we praise him and cry aloud: Rejoice, thou gladsome adornment of Venerable men.
