The commemoration of Saint Aristarchus of Thessalonica, who was a disciple of Saint Paul the Apostle, his faithful companion in travel, and eventually his fellow captive in Rome.
May Holy Mary and all the saints intercede to the Lord for us, that we may merit to be helped and saved by him who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
V. Precious in the sight of the Lord
R. Is the death of his holy ones.
V. May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life. And may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.
