Saint Cyril I
O God, who didst strengthen thy blessed Confessor and Bishop Saint Cyril,
invincibly to maintain the divine motherhood of the blessed Virgin Mary :
vouchsafe that at his intercession we, believing her to be indeed the Mother of God ;
may as her children rejoice in her protection.
Through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord,
Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost,
ever one God, world without end.
