"Neither fire, nor the sword..."

St. Charalampos the Hieromartyr (source)
Neither fire, nor the sword, nor death, nor persecutions, nor trials, nor hunger, nor danger, nor any tortures that could be devised, could truly overtake your love, or separate you from your Beloved [Christ], O Champion worthy to be praised.
-from the Matins Canon to St. Charalampos the Hieromartyr


Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
