by the fiery Brightness of the Divine Spirit, Thou were a Godly Zealot of True Belief, O James the Brother of God. Therefore, the Lord, Who tenderly accepted Thee as a Brother, vested Thee like Aaron of old, but with Vestments more honourable than those belonging to the Priesthood of the Law. O Glorious Apostle, pray to Him to Save our soul.

O Theotokos, through Thee was revealed


to us on earth, the Mystery, which was hidden from Eternity, and which the Angels themselves knew not: that God, uniting Natures without confusion, became Man and accepted crucifixion voluntarily for our Salvation; by virtue of which Resurrecting mankind whom He had first created, He Saved our souls from Death.
