Dismissal Hymn for the Athonite Fathers (Deacon Dionysios Firifiris)26 June 2017
The memory of All the Saints who shone on the Holy Mountain is celebrated on the second Sunday of Matthew. The establishment of the common feast began with the composition of the service and encomium by Saint Nikodimos the Athonite.
Let us honor in hymns and songs the Fathers of Athos,
Angels in the body, Confessors, Saints, Hierarchs and Martyrs,
and let us imitate their virtues,
the whole company of the monks on the Mountain, crying aloud with one voice:
Glory to Him Who crowned you,
Glory to Him Who sanctified you,
Glory to Him Who appointed you our protectors in dangers.
