Feast Day: Bright Friday
The Life-Giving Spring: …whose waters worked many healings and cured maladies by the Grace of the Theotokos; from this, it came to be called the “Life-Giving Spring.”
Apolytikion: As a Life-Giving Fount, thou didst conceive the Dew that is transcendent in essence, O Virgin Maid, and thou hast welled forth for our sakes the nectar of joy eternal, which doth pour forth from thy fount with the water that springeth up unto Everlasting Life in unending and mighty streams; wherein, taking delight, we all cry out: Rejoice, O thou Spring of Life for all men.
Kontakion: O Lady graced by God, you reward me by letting gush forth, beyond reason, the ever-flowing waters of your Grace from your perpetual Spring. I entreat you, who bore the Logos, in a manner beyond comprehension, to refresh me in your Grace that I may cry out, “Hail redemptive waters.”
