Lo, thy care for thy flock in its
sojourn hath prefigured the supplications which thou dost ever offer up for the
whole world. Thus do we believe, having come to know thy love, O holy hierarch
and wonderworker John! Wholly sanctified by God through the ministry of the
all-pure Mysteries, and thyself ever strengthened thereby, thou didst hasten
unto the suffering, O most gladsome healer. Hasten now also to the aid of us
who honour thee with all our heart.
