From the Menaion - 13 March


On 13 March, we celebrate the transfer of the relics of our father among the saints, Nicephoros, Patriarch of Constantinople.

O Nicephoros, the city from which you had once been banished now rejoices to receive your relics. On the thirteenth, your venerable body passes through the Bosphorus with the honors of a triumphal procession.

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