From the Menaion - 18 January


On 18 January, we commemorate our Fathers among the Saints, Athanasios and Cyril, Archbishops of Alexandria.

Athanasios, you live on after death: you share the fate of the death of God's holy ones. Remembering the end of Cyril, we could never come to an end in celebrating his glory. Scarcely had you been stripped of life on the eighteenth, O Athanasios, than your memory became immortal.

By their holy prayers, O our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
