After venerating the relics of St Alexey of Moscow and All Russia, the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God and other relics, His Grace prayed at vespers and then emerged from the altar for polyeleos. After the reading of the Gospel and the singing of “Open the doors to repentance, o Giver of Life,” Vladyka Nicholas anointed the multitude of worshipers.
