The blessing of the water. At the conclusion of the sermon, a basin of water is brought in to be blessed. During this ceremony the Archbishop prays that God will send His Holy Spirit in blessing. He commemorates those of the faithful who have departed to their final rest and calls upon the mother of God, all the saints, apostles, and prophets to join in his supplication for Divine mercy, world peace, the welfare of Christian people, strength and guidance for our President and rulers, and blessings on the Philoptochos Society and on all those participating in the services. After each supplication, the choir chants "Kyrie eleison" (Lord have Mercy). At the end of the prayer, the Archbishop dips a small bunch of vassilikos (sweet basil) into the blessed water and sprinkles the congregation with the sign of the cross, chanting "En Iordani vaptisomen sou Kyrie" (Oh Lord, baptized in the Jordan).

It is the hymn sung by the angels when Christ rose from the dead the third day, and is sung at the midnight services of Easter Saturday and for 40 days after at all services. During the blessing of the waters, the voice of the assistant, Father Karaphillis, is heard reciting the great Ectenia (supplication to God). The occasion of this ceremony was the public dedication of the building of a Ladies' Society, Philoptochos (friend of the poor) on May 12, 1940, at Tarpon Springs, Florida. Religious services were conducted by his Grace Archbishop Athenagoras, assisted by Rev. Father Karaphillis of Tarpon Springs' Greek Orthodox Church, St. Nicholas. Music and chants are by the Byzantine choir of the church, directed by Profesor George Anastassiou. An impressive demonstration of religious and patriotic fervor marked the serv
