First-enthroned of the apostles, teachers of the universe: Entreat the Master of
all to grant peace to the world, and to our souls great mercy!
Kontakion Tone 2
O Lord, You have taken up to eternal rest and to the enjoyment of Your blessings
the two divinely-inspired preachers, the leaders of the Apostles, for You have accepted
their labours and deaths as a sweet-smelling sacrifice, for You alone know what lies
in the hearts of men.
