Απολυτίκιον. Ηχος πλ. α'. Τον συνάναρχον Λόγον.
Της σοφίας έκφάντωρ λαμπρός γενόμενος, Ορθοδοξίας έδείχθης θεοπαγής προμαχών, των Πατέρων καλλονή Φώτιεμέγιστε· συ γαρ αιρέσεων δεινών, στηλιτεύεις την όφρύν, Έώας το θείον σέλας, της Εκκλησίας λαμπρότης, ην διατηρεί Πάτερ άσειστον.
Ἀπολυτίκιον. Ἦχος πλ. α'. Τὸν συνάναρχον Λόγον.
Τῆς σοφίας ἐκφάντωρ λαμπρὸς γενόμενος,
Ὀρθοδοξίας ἐδείχθης θεοπαγὴς προμαχών,
τῶν Πατέρων καλλονὴ Φώτιεμέγιστε·
σὺ γὰρ αἱρέσεων δεινῶν,
στηλιτεύεις τὴν ὀφρύν,
Ἑώας τὸ θεῖον σέλας,
τῆς Ἐκκλησίας λαμπρότης, ἣνδιατηρεῖ Πάτερ ἄσειστον.
Ἕτερον Ἀπολυτίκιον. Ηχος δ'
Ως των αποστόλων ομότροπος και της οικουμένης διδάσκαλος, τω Δεσπότη των όλων ικέτευε Φώτιε, ειρήνην τηοικουμένη δωρήσασθαι, και ταις ψυχαίς ημών το μέγα έλεος.

depth of discernment to deep for the eyes of mortals.
for thou bringest to God many of the saved.

thou by whom the profane are undone;
thou by whom thefaithful are confirmed.
Rejoice, O Photios most ven'rable
