Fursey of Burgh Castle
Hymn (Tone 5)
thy monastery in a Roman fortress thou didst teach men that the
Orthodox Faith is a true bastion against the onslaughts of every
evil force, O Father Fursey. Wherefore, pray to God for us that
we may all be bastions of the Faith, standing firm against the rising
tide of falsehood, and that our souls may be saved.
didst need the walls of stone to defend the Faith against its pagan
enemies, O Father Fursey, but pray for us that we may have a spiritual
wall around us to defend the Faith against its enemies. Following
thee and praising thine eternal memory, we stand firm against every
error, ever singing: Rejoice, beloved of God, our Father Fursey.
