From the Menaion - 29 January


On 29 January, we commemorate the transfer of the relics of the holy Hieromartyr Ignatios, the God-bearer.

A part of your body was preserved, O Ignatios. The faithful give thanks that the devouring lions spared these renowned relics. On the twenty-ninth, Ignatios made his return to his See.

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