As we, the faithful, gather to celebrate your holy memory, O Father Innocent,
we rejoice that, through your ceaseless toils,
the truth of the Gospel was rooted in our land.
Pray that we, your unworthy servants, may remain firm in the Orthodox Faith
and spread its truth to all people!

From the Lord, I Call verses for the Feast of the Glorification of St. Innocent, Apostle to the Americas (+1789), October 6
