Erc, Bishop of Slane in Ireland
Hymn (Tone 1)
in the darkness of heathendom thou didst recognise the God-given
authority of Ireland's Enlightener, O Hierarch Erc, and wast baptised
at his hands. Wherefore we beseech thee, pray to Christ our God
that, being blessed with the virtue of humility, we may be found
worthy of eternal salvation.
