Holy Five Martyrs

We have a small chapel dedicated to the holy martyrs Eustratius, Auxentius, Eugenius, Mardarius, and Orestes, whose feast day is December 13.

The Prayer of Saint Mardarius is read at the end of the Third Hour.

Δέσποτα Θεέ, Πάτερ παντοκράτορ, Κύριε Υἱὲ μονογενές, Ἱησοῦ Χριστέ, καὶ ἅγιον Πνεῦμα, μία Θεότης, μία δύναμις, ἐλέησόν με τὸν ἁμαρτωλόν· καί, οἷς ἐπίστασαι κρίμασι, σῶσόν με τὸν ἀνάξιον δοῦλόν σου· ὅτι εὐλογητός εἶ, εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων. Ἀμήν.

O Sovereign Master, God the Father Almighty, O Lord the Only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ, and Thou, O Holy Spirit, one Godhead, one Power, have mercy on me, a sinner; and by the judgments which Thou knowest, save me, Thine unworthy servant; for blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages. Amen.

      The chapel of the Five Martyrs is in the central complex of buildings, in one of the oldest parts of the monastery. I have only been there two or three times.
