From the Menaion - 17 March


On 17 March, we commemorate our venerable father Alexis, the Man of God.

Man of God, you alone on earth enjoyed that illustrious title! What unprecedented honor did you receive in Heaven, surrounded with glory? On the seventeenth, Alexis set out for the other world.

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