Icon and Hymn to St. Paisios of the Holy Mountain
Beautiful icon of St. Paisios of the Holy Mountain, along with an apolytikion. This was given out recently to the faithful that had attended a vigil to the Saint at the Monastery of Souroti (source)
Ηχος Πλαγιος Α. Τον Συναναρχον.
Tης ενθεου αγαπης το πυρ δεξαμενος υπερβαλλουση ασκησει εδοθης ολος Θεω και παρακλησις πολλων ανθωπων γεγονας, λογους θειους νουθετων, προσευχαις θαυματουργων Παισιε Θεοφορε, και νυν πρευσβευεις απαυστως υπερ παντός του κοσμου, Οσιε.
Apolytikion to St. Paisios of the Holy Mountain in the Plagal of the First Tone. (amateur translation)
You received in yourself the fire of godly love, * your whole self you then offered to God in ascesis, * and a comfort unto many people you became, * offering them your words divine, * working wonders through your prayers, Paisios, God-bearing Father, * and on behalf of the whole world, * you ceaselessly entreat, O Righteous One.
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
