Apolytikion, kontakion and megalynarion of St RAPAHEL, NICHOLAS AND IRENE

Apolytikion in honor of St. Raphael 
Since the discovery of thy divine relics, O wise one, Lesvos hath been filled with the Grace which hath been given in thee abundantly; for thou, O hosiomartyr Raphael, dost appear wondrously to many persons, and dost provide cures; wherefore we who are believers rejoice inthey marvels.

Apolytikion in honor of all three Saints 
Having contended on Lesvos for the sake for Christ God, you have sanctified the island since the discovery of your sacred relics, O blessed ones; wherefore we honor you, O God-bearing Raphael, together with Nicholas and virgin Irene, as our divine protectors and intercessors with the Lord.

Let all of us honor as our protectors and miracle-workers the holy Martyrs who manifestly contended for Christ, whose sacred relics were hidden under the earth for many years, and who have manifested themselves to us in wondrous ways: Raphael, Nicholas, and divine Irene, as well as those who contended with them in a godly-minded manner.

Let us honor with hymns the Hosiomartyrs of Christ, divine Raphael and venerable Nicholas, together with Irene, the guardians of Lesvos, for helping us.
