"A great protector and defender..."

St. Phanourios the Great Martyr (source)
A great protector and defender, you have been shown to be, O Martyr Phanourios, for wherever your sacred name is called upon, you speedily grant the gifts of your good will. Therefore, we joyously celebrate your holy memory, hymning you.
-Troparion of the 9th Ode of the Orthros Canon
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
