HYMNS FOR THE SMALL ENTRANCE.

APOLYTIKION OF THE RESURRECTION, PLAGAL OF FOURTH TONE.  From on high didst Thou descend, O Compassionate One; to burial of three days hast Thou submitted that Thou mightiest free us from our passions. O our Life and Resurrection, Lord, glory be to Thee.

APOLYTIKION OF THE DORMITION, FIRST TONE. In giving birth, thou didst preserve thy virginity; in thy dormition, thou didst not forsake the world, O Theotokos. Thou wast translated unto life, since thou art the Mother of Life; and by thine intercessions dost thou redeem our souls from death.

APOLYTIKION OF THE CHAPEL, STS. RAPHAEL, NICHOLAS AND IRENE, FOURTH TONE. On Lesbos, ye strove in contest for the sake of Christ God; * ye also have hallowed her with the discovery of your relics, O blessed ones. * O God-bearer Raphael, with thee, we all honor * Nicholas the deacon and Irene the chaste virgin, * as our divine protectors, who now intercede with the Lord.

KONTATION, SECOND TONE. O protection of Christians that cannot be put to shame, mediation unto the Creator most constant: O despise not the suppliant voices of those who have sinned; but be thou quick, O good one, to come unto our aid, who in faith cry unto thee: Hasten to intercession and speed thou to make supplication, thou who dost ever protect, O Theotokos, them that honour thee.

AFTER ALL THAT GOD HAS DONE FOR US HUMAN BEINGS, IT WILL BE A VERY GRAVE MATTER IF WE SHOULD GO TO HELL AND GRIEVE HIM. MAY GOD SO PROTECT THAT NOT ONE CREATURE, NOT EVEN A BIRD, SHOULD GO TO HELL.

ELDER PAISIOS, OF MT. ATHOS.
