Saturday Synaxis

O God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ our Lord has [blessed] the regenerating waters [of baptism]...and did yourself come on him by your Spirit, in the descent of the mysterious Dove on his head; grant, we ask you, that there may come on your whole church a blessing which may keep us all continually safe, may unceasingly bless all classes of your servants, may direct the course of those who follow you and open the door of the heavenly kingdom to all who are waiting to enter; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
