With thy discourses thou didst guide the nations to the Faith of Christ, and
by thy works thou didst lift thyself up to divine life, O holy hierarch Clement,
equal of the apostles, shining forth miracles upon those who approach thee with
faith, and ail-gloriously illumining the Church with signs. Wherefore, we
glorify thine honored memory. Kontakion of the holy hierarchy in Tone III, "Today the Virgin..." (after Ode
Thy temple, O holy one, is ail-gloriously shown to be spiritual healing for
those who approach it with faith; for it delivereth all from divers sicknesses,
and lulleth all the passions of men's souls to sleep. Wherefore, O most blessed
one, we call thee our fervent intercessor.
