November 8 /November 21
Troparion, Tone 4
Supreme Leaders of the Heavenly Hosts,/ we implore you that by your prayers you will encircle us,/ unworthy as we are,/ with the protection of the wings of your immaterial glory/ and guard us who fall down before you and fervently cry:/ deliver us from dangers,/ for you are the commanders of the powers above.
Troparion, Tone 1
Let us praise Cherubim, Seraphim, Thrones, Powers, Authorities and Principalities,/ Dominions, Archangels and Angels,/ for they are the Bodiless ministers of the Unoriginate Trinity/ and revealers of incomprehensible mysteries./ Glory to Him Who has given you being; glory to Him Who has given you light;/ glory to Him Who is praised by you in thrice-holy hymns.
Kontakion, Tone 2
Supreme Leaders of God's armies and ministers of the divine glory,/ princes of the bodiless Angels and guides of men,/ ask what is good for us and great mercy,/ as Supreme Leaders of the Bodiless Hosts.
Saint Philaret Troparion, 5th tone
"Let us the faithful now come together * to praise our father, protector and teacher * the pillar of the Orthodox faith * and firm defender of piety * even the wondrous hierarch Philaret * and let us glorify our Saviour * Who has granted us his incorrupt relics * as a manifest sign of his sanctity".
