Saint Eusebius


Daniel 3:84, 87, 57

O ye priests of the Lord, bless the Lord: O ye holy and humble of heart, praise God. Ps. All ye works of the Lord, bless the Lord: praise and exalt Him above all for ever. Glory be to the Father.


O God, who dost gladden us by the annual feast of blessed Eusebius, Thy Martyr and Bishop: mercifully grant that we who celebrate his heavenly birthday, may also rejoice in his protection. Through our Lord.


2 Corinthians 1:3-7

Brethren: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort, Who comforts us in all our afflictions, that we also may be able to comfort those who are in any distress by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so also through Christ does our comfort abound. For whether we are afflicted, it is for your instruction and salvation; or whether we are comforted, it is for our comfort; which shows its efficacy in the endurance of the selfsame sufferings that we also suffer. And our hope for you is steadfast, knowing that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so will you also be of the comfort, in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Psalm 8:6-7

Thou hast crowned him with glory and honour. And hast set him over the works of Thy hands, O Lord.


Alleluia, alleluia. This is the priest whom the Lord hath crowned. Alleluia.


Matthew 16:24-27

At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For he that will save his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for my sake, shall find it. For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what exchange shall a man give for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels: and then will he render to every man according to his works.


Psalm 88:21-22

I have found David My servant, with My holy oil I have anointed him; for My hand shall help him, and My arm shall strengthen him.


Sanctify, O Lord, the gifts dedicated to Thee, and through them, by the intercession of blessed Eusebius, Thy Martyr and Bishop, graciously regard us. Through our Lord.


Psalm 20:4

Thou hast set on his head, O Lord, a crown of precious stones.


Refreshed by the participation in the holy gift, we beseech Thee, O Lord our God, that by the intercession of blessed Eusebius Thy Martyr and Bishop, we may experience the effect of that which we celebrate. Through the Lord.
