The holy dust of your relics does many miracles. It guards from bolts of lightning, and it rescues from perils and from epidemics. And therefore we pray, O St. Christopher who endured uncounted labors, that you ever keep us safe from disaster and catastrophe (sticheron of Festal Vespers).
O Christopher, robed in the purple of your martyrdom, You came before the Lord of heaven; Therefore with the choirs of angels,You now sing the Thrice-Holy Hymn. Intercede for the salvation of those who honor you. (Festal Apolytikion)
