"Who would not leap for joy?"

St. Nektarios the Wonderworker, Archbishop of Pentapolis (source)
Who would not leap for joy? Who would not dance in the Spirit at the new festival of the Hierarch Nektarios? For every soul rejoices, beholding him glorified and of equal station with the Saints, and being made known through wonders. Therefore, we bless the radiance of his life, and his assets of righteousness, as we cry out: Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and unto the ages.
-Idiomelon of the Litia for the feast of St. Nektarios the Wonderworker


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