Let us all who are seeking the grace of God * now in unison praise and extol in song * the ever-flowing living well, * the divine Spring that gushes streams. * Every day it gushes the healings and cures indeed, * and makes streams of rivers seem small in comparison. * Therefore as is fitting let us approach with longing * and faithfully draw from this * holy Spring inexhaustible * health and vigor immortal indeed, * that clearly refreshes the hearts * of the pious. Let us therefore cry aloud: * You are the consolation of believers all. [SD]

On April 29, we commemorate the holy Apostles of the Seventy, Jason and Sosipater.

Come, all faithful, let us venerate the holy Resurrection of Christ; for behold, through the Cross, joy has come to the whole world. Ever blessing the Lord, let us praise His Resurrection; for having endured the Cross for us, He destroyed death by death. (3)
