From the Menaion - 6 February


On 6 February, we commemorate our father among the Saints, Photios the Great, Patriarch of Constantinople.

On this same day, we commemorate our venerable father Bukolos, Bishop of Smyrna.

After his death, Bukolos, the great priest, remains a watchful shepherd for Smyrna, a protector for its flock. On the sixth, he set out for the original uncreated Light, leaving behind earthly illumination.

By their holy prayers, O our God, take pity on us and save us. Amen.
