Apolitikion Saints Raphael, Nicholas & Irene
Having contended on Lesvos for the sake of Christ God, you have sanctified the island since the discovery of your sacred relics.
O blessed ones: wherefore we honor you, O God-bearing Raphael, together with Nicholas and virgin Irene, as our divine protectors and intercessors with the Lord.
Let all of us honor as our protectors and miracle-workers the Holy Martyrs who manifestly contended for Christ, whose sacred relics were hidden under the earth for many years, and who have manifested themselves to us in wondrous ways.
Raphael, Nicholas, and divine Irene, as well as those who contended with them in a Godly minded manner.
