Are there any existing prayers written by St Cyril of Alexandria (outside of his Liturgy)?  Huh


As-Salamu alaykum! Smiley

Here's a litany of his in honor of the Theotokos:

"Hail, O Mary, Mother of God, Virgin and Mother! Morning Star, perfect vessel.
We salute thee, Mother of God.
Hail, O Mary, Mother of God! holy temple in which God Himself was conceived.
We salute thee, Mother of God.
Hail, O Mary, Mother of God! chaste and pure dove.
We salute thee, Mother of God.
Hail, O Mary, Mother of God! ever-effulgent light; from thee proceedeth the Sun of Justice.
We salute thee, Mother of God.
Hail, O Mary, Mother of God ! Thou didst enclose in thy sacred womb the One Who cannot be encompassed.
We salute thee, Mother of God.
Hail, O Mary, Mother of God! With the shepherds we sing the praise of God, and with the angels the song of thanksgiving: Glory to God in the highest and peace on earth to men of good will.
We salute thee, Mother of God.
Hail, O Mary, Mother of God! Through thee came to us the Conqueror and the triumphant Vanquisher of hell.
We salute thee, Mother of God.
Hail, O Mary, Mother of God! Through thee blossoms the splendor of the resurrection.
We salute thee, Mother of God.
Hail, O Mary, Mother of God! Thou hast saved every faithful Christian.
We salute thee, Mother of God.
Hail, O Mary, Mother of God! Who can praise thee worthily, O glorious Virgin Mary!
We salute thee, Mother of God."

I could be be wrong, but I think St Cyril also wrote this:

"We exalt you, the Mother of the true Light. We glorify you, O Saint, the Theotokos, for you brought forth unto us the Savior of the whole world; He came and saved our souls.

Glory to You, our Master, our King, Christ, the pride of the apostles, the crown of the martyrs, the joy of the righteous, the firmness of the churches, the forgiveness of sins.

We proclaim the Holy Trinity in One Godhead. We worship Him. We glorify Him.

Lord have mercy. Lord have mercy. Lord bless. Amen.

I found this written by St Cyril of Alexandria:

Hail to Mary, Mother of God,
majestic treasure of the whole world,
the lamp unquenchable, the crown of virginity,
the sceptre of Orthodoxy, the indestructible temple,
the dwelling of the Illimitable, Mother and Virgin.
