The promise echoed at the end of the Kontakion (and its Eikos) is powerful for us in this age, is it not?
I am with you, and there is, therefore, none against you!
Glory to God for All Things!When you had fulfilled the dispensation
for our sake, and united things on
earth with the things in heaven, You were
taken up thither in glory, O Christ our
God, going not away from any place, but
continuing inseparable, and to them that
love You crying out, “I am with you, and
there is, therefore, none against you.”
Blessed Ascension to all!
