Propers for the Day

Propers for the Day

7th – Martyr Dometius of Persia
Troparion – Tone 4
After disciplining yourself with prayer and fasting on the mountain, / you destroyed the hosts of spiritual enemies with the weapon of the Cross. / You bravely armed yourself again for martyrdom / and were crowned both for your life and for your death, // O blessed Hieromartyr Dometius.
Kontakion – Tone 6
You rose above earthly things which drag down the mind, / you were a great guide of monks, O Dometius. / You did not fear the furious emperor who would not honor God. / Therefore O Hieromartyr, you died chanting the hymn: // "God is with me and no one can be against me."

14th – Forefeast of the Dormition
Troparion – Tone 4
O you people leap for joy and clap your hands, / and lovingly cry out with ra-diant gladness./ For the Ever-Virgin Mary is about to rise glor-ious-ly from earth to heaven.// Let us ever glorify her as the Mother of God.
Kontakion – Tone 4
Today the universe dances with joy at your glor-ious memorial, / and cries out to you, O Mother of God: // "Rejoice, O Virgin, pride of Christians!"

21st – Apostle Thaddeus of the 70
Troparion – Tone 4
O holy disciple and witness to God / who appeared in the flesh for our sakes, / you brought the light of saving grace to those in darkness, / you were revealed as an excellent physician to the people of Edessa. // Therefore shelter those who fervently seek you.
Kontakion – Tone 4
The Church has acquired you as a star, O Thaddeus, / and is ever enlightened by your miracles. // Save those who faithfully venerate your memory.

28th – Venerable Moses the Egyptian
Troparion – Tone 5
You abandoned the Egypt of passions / and fervently ascended the mount of virtues, / and took Christ's Cross on your shoulders. / You were glorified in your works / and were a model for monks, O Moses summit of the Fathers. // With them pray unceasingly that we may obtain great mercy.
Kontakion – Tone 3
You were enriched with divine illumination, O Moses, / and dispelled the darkness of passions. / You quenched the pride of the flesh by vigils and prayers / and went forth to the heavenly citadel. // O holy Father, pray to Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.


Troparia & Kontakia for March 2016

Troparion of St. Thomas - Tone 2
You were a disciple of Christ, a member of the divine assembly of the Apostles, / for you made certain the Resurrection of Christ through your disbelief, / and verified His all-pure Passion by your touch, O all-praised Thomas, / beseech now peace and great mercy for our souls!

Kontakion of St. Thomas - Tone 4
Thomas, disciple of Christ and His faithful servant, / filled with divine Grace, /
cried out in the sincerity of his love, / “You are my Lord and my God.”

O Unashamed Intercessor- Tone 6
O unashamed Intercessor of Christians, / ever loyal advocate before the Creator, / do not disregard the prayerful voice of sinners / but in your goodness hasten to assist us / who trustfully cry out to you: / Intercede always O Mother of God, / in behalf of those who honor you.
