Searching for an Akathist to St Photini. Help please!
« on: January 15, 2015, 10:28:59 PM »
I've searched everywhere I know to search, as has our priest, and we cannot seem to find an Akathist to St. Photini.  Surely there must be one!  I would be immeasurably grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.  Oh, how much I would appreciate it!

Please move if this is the incorrect place to post this.  Since Akathists are a part of the liturgical life of the Church, it was my best guess.   :)

Try looking for it under the name St Svetlana, the Slavonic form of Photini:)

Thank you for the suggestion.  Alas, I've tried it and every conceivable form/language I could find.  *sigh*

There's a fair chance I have one on file in Slavonic, but it might take a little time for me to find it. If I do find it, would you be interested?

It's also worth remembering that large numbers of saints have no hymnography at all written specifically for them.

I sent you a PM.

It would help a friend of mine, though she only speaks English.

Thank you for the replies and the pm.  Yes, LBK.  If you ever happen upon it, I would love to have it.  Thank you!  It's always seemed odd to me that I haven't been able to find one.  Our priest was also unable to locate it.   :-\

Thank you, LBK. I got the one you sent and will try to share it today, although this is the day the priest is busiest. I will share it also with our Photini, although she does like to talk A LOT! So I will wait until after service.

You must be confusing me with someone else. I haven't had the chance to look for the akathist, so I couldn't have sent it to you.  ???
