"O woe, truly I am being destroyed!", cries out Hades..."
Christ raising Lazarus from the dead (source)
"O woe, truly I am being destroyed!", cries out Hades, which speaks to Death saying: "Behold, the Nazarene makes the things below tremble, and rents apart my belly, raising the speechless dead man with His voice."-from the Compline Canon of St. Andrew of Crete for the Saturday of Lazarus
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
