Gregory the Illuminator
Today, the Church remembers Gregory the Illuminator, Bishop, Missionary, and Apostle of the Armenians. His last years were spent in solitude, and he died about c. 332.
Almighty God, who raised up your servant Gregory to be a light in the world, and to preach the Gospel to the people of Armenia: Illuminate our hearts, that we also in our own generation may show forth your praise, who called us out of darkness and into your marvelous light; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
