All Saints who have shone forth in North America


Matushka Olga Michael (+ November 8, 1979)

Tone 4

Today, as we celebrate the memory of all the Saints of North America,

let us praise them as is fitting,

for they lived all of Christ’s beatitudes.

Deprived of material wealth, they became rich in spirit;

meek, they inherited the earth;

mourning, they were comforted;

thirsting for righteousness, they were satisfied;

merciful, they obtained mercy;

pure in heart, they beheld the image of God;

as peacemakers, they became God’s children;

persecuted and tortured for righteousness’ sake, they now rejoice in

heaven;//

and they pray fervently to the Lord that He may have mercy on our souls.
