THE COMMEMORATION OF THE SIX ECUMENICAL COUNCILS

July 16

From the Prologue

This common commemoration of the first Six Ecumenical Councils is held on the Sunday between the 13th and the 19th of July.

HYMN OF PRAISE

THE HOLY MARTYR JULIA THE VIRGIN

The martyr Julia,

For her, Christ was crucified,

The power of Christ, she invokes,

The power of the Honorable Tree.

Blood poured from six wounds,

With blood, stained the earth,

For, in Christ she believed,

Her faith, she did not conceal.

Nor did Christ conceal her,

To the entire world, proclaimed her,

And in the Kingdom Immortal

In heaven, glorified her

When Julia expired

Her spirit, pure and holy,

From her mouth, a white dove

To the heights soared

When men saw this

All in fear, cried out:

"Woe to the evil judges"

That righteous blood, they shed!
