the Hosts of Martyrs indeed have concentrated every Virtue within themselves. And henceforth they have deservedly obtained the Holy Delight of Uncorrupted Blessed Life in God. And Thou, O Demetrios, art among them preeminent. Thou art admired for Thy Likeness to Christ Himself; Thou can rightly boast of identity through the spear. Therefore persistently Entreat so that we who now honour Thee can be rescued from calamities and distressing occurences, through Thy Supplications to God Who always grants His Great Mercy to the world.

§ Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit

Let

us honour the one who by lances inherited Grace from our Saviour’s Side that was pierced by a lance, and from which our Saviour poured out for us Streams of Life and Incorruption; O Demetrios, who was most wise in his Teachings, and with the Martyrs wears a Wreath of Victory. He finished the Course of his Contest through blood, and through Miracles he became illustrious throughout the world. He was zealous for the Master, and a Compassionate Love of the poor; many a time the Defender of the people of Thessalonika in many a dread danger. As we celebrate his annula Memorial, we Glorify Christ God, Who through him works Healings for all. and ever, and to the Ages of Ages.
