Hierarch’s Divine Liturgy ( 23.10.2005 )

“Open my lips, O most bright, with your God-pleasing prayers to stand before God, O all-glorious holy Confessor: to praise your life in hymns, and declare worthily your virtues, which you performed on earth with warmest love, you who were a firm confessor, with self-restraint you corrected faith, and embraced vigilance and purity, O Theophilus, most bright father.” (Verses at Matins)

“The Providence’s talent having multiplied, all-praised, you resembled the joy of your Lord, adorned with the grace of Divine radiance, and with the spiritual light shining, you stand now before the right hand of the Life-giver, thence with light illumined, O glorious Theophilus.” (Verses at Vespers)
