holy hierarchs, venerable monastics and glorious martyrs,
pious men, women and children, both known and unknown!
Through their words and deeds, in various walks of life,
by the grace of the Spirit they achieved true holiness.
Now as they stand in the presence of Christ Who glorified them,
they pray for us, who celebrate their memory with love.
Tone 2, Great Vespers
On the second Sunday after Pentecost, Orthodox Churches around the world commemorate the lives of the saints who have been recognized as spiritual luminaries in their distinct territory. In accordance with this practice, Orthodox Christians in North America remember our saints on this day. Holy Saints of North America, pray to God for us!
