Services often include the [[clergy]] or the [[faithful]] triumphantly processing around the church, holding icons of their [[patron saint|patron]] or parish saints. In areas where multiple [[jurisdiction]]s exist (such as the United States), [[Pan-Orthodox]] [[Vespers]] are also usually celebrated in the evening.
[[Troparion]] (Tone 2)
:We venerate Your most pure image, O Good One,
:and ask forgiveness of our transgressions, O Christ God.
:Of Your own will You were pleased to ascend the Cross in the flesh
:to deliver Your creatures from bondage to the enemy.
:Therefore with thanksgiving we cry aloud to You:
:You have filled all with joy, O our Savior,
:by coming to save the world.
[[Kontakion]] (Tone 8)
:No one could describe the Word of the Father;
:but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos, He accepted to be described,
:and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
:We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and images.
