An exclamation (Greek: ἐκφώνησις (ekphonesis); Slavonic: Возглас (Vozglas)) is the concluding doxology said by the priest glorifying the Holy Trinity at the end of a litany or liturgical prayer. Typically, it is the only audible portion of the many silent prayers in the liturgy, though some of these silent or "secret" prayers are said aloud as well according to the practice of some.
