Here is the text of a Troparion for the Feast: ‘Commanders of the heavenly hosts, we who are unworthy beseech you, by your prayers encompass us beneath the wings of your immaterial glory, and faithfully preserve us who fall down and cry to you: “Deliver us from all harm, for you are the commanders of the powers on high!”’

Today, with all the angels and archangels, the worship of heaven and earth is one. This is true all the time, but specially on this day. May we live constantly in this awareness, and may God and His angels be very close to you this day, bringing you much blessing.
