Steps to Ancient Chapels

Weathered steps lead up to the Chapel of Saint Anthony, and the Chapel of Saint John the Forerunner.

Ἀπολυτίκιον τοῦ Ἀγίου Ἀντωνίου, Ἦχος δ΄

Τὸν ζηλωτὴν Ἠλίαν τοῖς τρόποις μιμούμενος, τῷ Βαπτιστῇ εὐθείαις ταῖς τρίβοις ἑπόμενος, Πάτερ Ἀντώνιε, τῆς ἐρήμου γέγονας οἰκιστὴς, καὶ τὴν οἰκουμένην ἐστήριξας εὐχαῖς σου· διὸ πρέσβευε Χριστῷ τῷ Θεῷ, σωθήναι τὰς ψυχὰς ἡμῶν.

Dismissal Hymn of Saint Anthony, Fourth Tone

Emulating the ways of Elias the zealot, and following the straight paths of the Baptist, O Father Anthony, thou madest of the desert a city, and didst support the world by thy prayers: wherefore intercede with Christ God that our souls be saved.
