^ Am I reading this right? An Estonian wrote these prayers in Greek? Why not Estonian, or even Russian?
The Estonian wrote music ("a setting") for prayers written by St. John Chrysostom (who wrote in Greek) using an English translation.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.
