Feast of the Holy Martyrs Photius & Anicetus of Nicomedia
GIVE ME MY plectrum, boy, that I may sing in faithful verse
A sweet and melodious song, of the glorious deeds of Christ.
Him alone may my Muse sing of, Him alone may my lyre praise.
Christ it is whose future coming was proclaimed by the priest-king
In his vestments, with voice, with strings and percussion,
Drinking deep the spirit...
Feast of St Euplus the Holy Martyr & Archdeacon of Cantania
RADIANCE OF the Father’s glory
Bringing forth light out of light,
Light of light and source of all light,
Daylight, illuminating days.
True sun, come down upon us,
Shining with brightness eternal,
And pour forth into our minds
The Holy Spirit’s brilliance.
Let us pray to the Father, too,
Father of eternal glory,
Father of all-powerful grace,...
