SAINT PETER

January 30

From the Prologue

Peter was the son of Simeon who was a great admirer of St. John of Rila. He gained independence for the Bulgarian Church from Constantinople and preserved Orthodoxy in Bulgaria from the Bogomils. After an unsuccessful war with the Hungarians and Russians, Peter died in 967 A.D. in the fifty-sixth year of his life.

HYMN OF PRAISE

THE THREE HIERARCHS: SAINT BASIL, SAINT GREGORY, AND

SAINT CHRYSOSTOM

Fasting and Faith - Basil,

Theology - Gregory,

Acts of Charity - Chrysostom,

Golden mouths, mouths of honey!

All laborers of one work;

Three separately - three angels,

The three together as God is one,

No one is the main one, no one is secondary.

In eternity, they all agree,

You invoke one, all three help,

You hymn one, all three hear,

You glorify one, all three rejoice.

Three men, one whole;

Three hierarchs, one deed;

Three names, one glory;

To all three of them, Christ is the Head.
