Gather my scattered mind, O Lord, and purify my hardened heart. Grant me repentance, even as Thou didst to Peter; and heartfelt sighing, as Thou didst grant to the publican; and tears, as to the harlot, that with a great voice I may cry unto Thee: O God, save me, since Thou alone art compassionate and the Friend of humanity.

By faith ye shine forth, O Saints, supremely radiant luminaries, lovers of godly piety, all-famed prizewinners. For by not cowering before the tyrants' tortures, ye cast to the earth the delusion of the idols, since ye had the Cross as an invincible trophy of the truth.
