Protection of the Mother of God
Kontakion Tone 3
For the Holy Protection of the Mother of God: Today the Virgin doth stand before us in church, / and with the choirs of saints / invisibly prayeth for us to God. / Angels worship with hierarchs, / apostles rejoice with prophets, / for the Theotokos prayeth for us to the Eternal God.
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".
