United in the Faith, your nearness of kinship/ was made radiant by your divine struggles,/ O blessed Martyr Anicetas and Photius servant of Light./ Pray that those who hymn your holy contest/ may be granted the forgiveness of their sins.

The Bible tells us that in God's time, the day begins with evening ("The evening and the morning were the first day"), so the services of the Church begin in the evening with Vespers, a service that in some ways "closes" the day that is past and in other ways begins the new day. The next morning, the services of the Third Hour and the Sixth Hour continue the services of that day, followed immediately by the Divine Liturgy.
