SAINT EULALIUS

August 30

From the Prologue

Eulalius was one of the predecessors of St. Basil. He defrocked his son of his priestly rank for wearing clothing unbecoming his spiritual vows.

HYMN OF PRAISE

THE ASSEMBLY OF THE HOLY SERBIAN ENLIGHTENERS AND TEACHERS

Chosen ones of God, Serbian saints,

Teachers wise and enlighteners,

Princes spiritual, glorious heroes.

Of the flock of Christ, most good shepherds,

God you served, denied themselves

And beacons you were to your people:

Of divine characteristics, God-bearing men,

From the Holy Trinity, the light you received,

Generously you received and everywhere dispersed it,

And from your labors, miracles sprouted.

In the footprints of Sava, all walked straight

Throughout the Serbian land, holiness you raised,

Faith in the Word of God, you confirmed,

In the new garment, you clothed the souls,

With beautiful churches, you adorned the land,

O men of God, "equal to the angels!"

Of the Serbian people, you were angels,

To glorify God, you taught the Serbs,

To worship the Savior, the living Christ,

And faithfully served the Holy Gospel.

In heaven, that is why the Lord glorified you

And, as candles before the Serbian people, placed you

That living in heaven you shine on earth

To lead your people to truth and justice.

As long as the Serbian people, your example admire

By your prayers until then, the people will live.
