IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, ONE GOD.  AMEN.

And on this day is commemorated our holy Father Aragawi, who is surnamed Za-Mikael.  This holy man became a guide to the servants of God on the road.  And he went up to the holy Dabra Damo holding the tail of a serpent, and there he fought countless noble fights.  And God graciously made a covenant with him concerning the man who should call upon his name, and the man who should celebrate his commemoration, and then he was hidden from the face of death by the grace of God.  He established among his children the Rules for the Monastic Life, which he had learned in the house of his father Pachomius.

Salutation to Za-Mikael who was surnamed “’Aragawi.
