Celebrated on the Saturday of Bright Week
Apolytikion of the Mother of God of Los Angeles
Rejoice, Virgin Mother full of grace,
Queen of the Angels and Protectress of the Human race
From you dawned the Sun of righteousness, Christ our God
Who Illumines through the Gospel all of creation and mankind
Implore Him o Mother of God and shelter of the 'City of Angels'
To guard all the children of God in the City
And so save our souls as He who alone loves mankind.
