The Apolytikion, Kontakion and Megalynarion of St. Amphilochios Makris Chanted in Patmos

By Hieromonk Antipas
Elder of the Athonite Sacred Cell of Saint Anna under Iveron Monastery

Composed in 1986

(These are the hymns that have been chanted in Patmos.)

Tone Pl. of the 1st.
The Co-beginningless Word.
Let us all praise Amphilochios, the new star of the Church of Christ, truly the ornament of the island of Patmos, the beauty of monastics and lover of piety, the lamp of prudence; he intercedes to the Lord that He may have mercy on our souls.

Tone 3.
The Virgin Today.
In the last days father, you have shown to be a boast of the Church, shining with the virtues; wherefore we cry out to you with reverence, deliver us all from dangers, Amphilochios, the divine glory and pride of Patmos.

Rejoice the beauty of Priests, rejoice the revered ornament of Venerables, rejoice the glory and boast of Greece and of all Orthodox, O Amphilochios.
