Propers for Theodore of Sykeon - Bishop
O God, our heavenly Father, who didst raise up thy faithful servant Theodore of Sykeon to be a bishop and pastor in thy Church and to feed thy flock: Give abundantly to all pastors the gifts of thy Holy Spirit, that they may minister in thy household as true servants of Christ and stewards of thy divine mysteries; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and Holy Ghost, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
