saint of the day, you'll first sing "Lord I have cried" and the first
three stichera from the Octoechos in the tone of the week.
If there are six or more stichera in the Menaion, then they'll replace
the Octoechos stichera, and you'll sing "Lord I have cried" and all the
Menaion verses in the tone specified in the Menaion.
