he King of Kings and God Who adorns the worthy with abundant Gifts, caught Thee in His Net, through the Sign of the Cross, like He did to Paul the Glorious, O Constantin. He said to Thee:
By this Sign Conquer Thine enemies!” 
 Thus, having sought Him, as did Thy Godly-minded Moter, and, having found Him for Whom Thou longed, Thou utterly defeated them. Together with Thy Mother, earnestly pray for Orthodox Rulers, and the Christ-loving Armed Forces, and for all of us who loyally observe Thy memory, Entreating Him Who alone Loves humanity: to Deliver us from all wrath.
