First Sunday of Luke

On this Sunday, we commemorate Martyr Phocas.

The Master hath established thee as a divinely-radiant luminous, and spiritual sun shining upon the multitude of the Church’s faithful, O glorious Martyr Phocas; for He hath accepted thy life, faith and contests as fragrant myrrh, since He alone is abundant in mercy.
