Silouan of Athos
Apolytikion of Silouan of Athos
Having knowledge of the Holy Spirit, * thou didst share in Adam's lamentation * and didst yearn after Christ most insatiably. * By firmly staying thy mind in the depths of hell, * thou didst become a true bearer of love for man. * Intercede with Christ, O Venerable Father Silouan, * that His great mercy may be granted unto us.
