"That you might be arrayed, O Demetrios..."

St. Demetrios the Great Martyr and Myrrh-streamer (source)
That you might be arrayed, O Demetrios, in the garment which the former Adam was stripped of, you put on the new Adam [Christ], and you put off the skin of the flesh, therefore because of this, myrrh and crowns of the Kingdom were radiantly betrothed to you.
-from the Matins Canon of St. Demetrios
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
