You lately appeared to us as a newly-shining star of the Church, O Champion Phanourios, and through your revelation, you truly shine upon all the gifts of your hidden riches. Those who praise your all-famed memory cry out to you together: Rejoice, O soldier of Christ all-wondrous, who worked the struggle of piety as a champion. Rejoice, you who were nourished by the light of the Lord, and according to your name, you reveal the knowledge of things unknown. Rejoice, the adornment of the people Rhodes, the radiance of Martyrs, and the intercessor of all the faithful before the Lord. Entreat Him, we pray, on behalf of our souls.
-Doxastikon of the Stichera for the Feast of St. Phanourios the Great Martyr and Newly-revealed
