From the Menaion - 8 March


On 8 March, we commemorate our venerable father Theophylactos, the Confessor, Metropolitan of Nicomedia.

Theophylactos, who was banished from his fatherland, is now further exiled from his body. On the eighth, blending his voice with that of the heavenly choirs, the saint, who was protected by God, is welcomed back into the sheepfold.

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