Doxology for St Paul during Great Lent
Facing danger at sea, and fearful persecution, you became a chosen vessel, of our Lord and Savior. By your sermons and letters, you enlightened the nations and to the Athenians you revealed, the unknown God. You are the teacher of the nations, and protector of us all, keep us who honor you, safe from every tribulation. You were beheaded, in the great city of Rome. by Emperor Nero, for the Name of Jesus Christ. Pray to the Lord on our behalf, our lord and father the Apostle, our great teacher St. Paul, that He may forgive us our sins.
