Epistle Regarding the Holy Monastery of St. John Maximovitch in Cobleskill, NY
Most holy Mother of God,
today we Orthodox joyfully celebrate thy coming among us.
As we gaze at thy icon we cry with compunction:
Shelter us under thy protection, deliver us from evil,
and pray thy Son Christ our God to save our souls.
Icon of the Protection of the Mother of God.
From the Protection Monastery in Suzdal. Late 15th century.
Saint Philaret Troparion, 5th tone
"Let us the faithful now come together * to praise our father, protector and teacher * the pillar of the Orthodox faith * and firm defender of piety * even the wondrous hierarch Philaret * and let us glorify our Saviour * Who has granted us his incorrupt relics * as a manifest sign of his sanctity".
