Venerable Prochorus of Pcinja

Commemorated on October 19


O dweller of the desert and angel in the body,
you were shown to be a wonderworker, our Godbearing Father Prochorus.
You received heavenly gifts through fasting, vigil, and prayer:
healing the sick and the souls of those drawn to you by faith.
Glory to Him who gave you strength!
Glory to Him who granted you a crown!
Glory to Him who through you grants healing to all!


Boldly revealing a great victory and burning with heavenly love,
you disdained the corruptible king and rejected all earthly pleasures;
taking up your abode on Mount Kozjak,
you ascended from it to the King of kings in heaven.
O Prochorus, ceaselessly intercede for us all!
