Saints Raphael, Nicholaos and Irene ...



Apolytikio Having contended on Lesvos for the sake of Christ God, you have sanctified the island since the discovery of your sacred relics, O blessed ones; for what reason we honour you, O God-bearing Raphael, together with Nicholaos and the virgin Irene, as our divine protectors and intercessors with the Lord.

Kontakion Let all of us honour as our protectors and miracle-workers the holy Martyrs who manifestly contended for Christ. Whose relics were hidden under the earth for many years, and who have manifested themselves to us in wondrous ways, Raphael, Nicholaos and Irene, as well as those who contended with them in a godly-minded manner.

Megalynarion Let us honour with hymns the Hosiomartyrs of Christ, divine Raphael and venerable Nicholas, together with Irene, the guardians of Lesvos, for helping all.
