Akathist Hymn

Apolytikion: The son of Evia, the Elder of All Greeks, the initiate of Divine Vision and true friend of Christ. Porphyrios, o faithful, let us praise who from childhood was filled with Divine gifts, the demonized are redeemed and the sick are healed who cry out: “Glory to Him who gave His might to you! Glory to Him who made you Holy! Glory to Him, who, through you, effects cures for all.”

Kontakion: The most-Holy temple of the Comforter, and the beloved of the All-Pure Theotokos. Let us praise Porphyrios from our heart, for he loves and heals all, and protects, and intercedes, that we be granted Theosis. Therefore, we cry out: Rejoice, O Father Porphyrios.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.
Christ is our Friend, our Brother… He is Everything.
Although the adversary is approaching, you open your arms, lifting them toward Christ.
I saw Heaven!
I give myself over entirely to Your Love.
