Apolytikion to St. Iakovos Abbot of the Holy Monastery of St. David (+1991)
(written by Charalampos Bousias)
Plagal of the First Tone.
The prototype of discernment and modesty, the wonderworking leader of the Monastery of David the venerable, who plowed and sowed love in the hardened hearts of the God-bearing people, O Father Iakovos. Do not neglect to intercede with Christ on behalf of those who call upon you in faith.
Note***: The official service of St. Iakovos has not been released yet so the commonly used apolytikion may change in the future.
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
