Troparia & Kontakia and Propers for the Day

Troparia & Kontakia for August 2014

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.
Propers for the Days

3rd – Ven. Isaac, Dalmatus & Faustus of Constantinople
Troparion – Tone 1
Let us honor the triple choir of righteous fathers, / glorious Isaac, Dalmatos and Faustos. / They dispel the night of passions by the three-branched candlestick of Christ the Light / and by their virtues illuminate those who cry: / Glory to Him Who has made you wonderful; / glory to Him Who has magnified you; / glory to Him Who through you works healings for all.

Kontakion – Tone 2
By asceticism you shone like lights in the world / and by your faith you overthrew heresies. / O Isaac,
Dalmatos and Faustos, / we praise you with hymns as servants of Christ who are praying for us all.

10th – Martyr Archdeacon Lawrence of Rome
Troparion – Tone 3
Aflame with the Spirit like a living coal / you burned up the thorns of error, O blessed trophy-bearer Lawrence, archdeacon of Christ. / Like rational incense you became a whole burnt offering to Him Who magnified you. / Therefore shelter from all assaults of the enemy those who glorify you.

Kontakion – Tone 1
With divine fire you kindled your heart, O Lawrence / and reduce the fire of the passions to ashes. / O staff of athletes, Godbearing Martyr, / You did cry with faith while contesting: / No one will separate me from the love of Christ.

17th – Martyr Myron
Troparion – Tone 4
O holy Myron, you were an alabaster vessel of virtue, / you faithfully served Christ's Church and contest as a martyr. / Wherefore by the fragrance of the gifts God has given you, / you dispelled the stench of our soul's passions, / and by thy prayers you obtain our forgiveness.

Kontakion – Tone 2
You loved Christ from your childhood, O glorious Martyr, / you kept His commandments and ran to Him
wholeheartedly, O Myron. / Now you rest with the Angels / and glorify Him and ask forgiveness for us all.

24th – Hieromartyr Eutychius
Troparion – Tone 4
O disciple of the holy Apostles, / you were a teacher of godliness / and openly proclaimed the incarnation of the Word. / You suffered as a martyr and confirm the word of Faith by your miracles. / O Hieromartyr and Father Eutychius pray to Christ our God for our souls.

Kontakion – Tone 3
You were a successor of the Apostles and an example to bishops / O Eutychius who died as a martyr. / You shone like the sun and illuminate all, / dispelling the darkness of godlessness. / Wherefore we venerate you as Christ's divine servant.

31st – The placing of the sash of the Theotokos
Troparion – Tone 8
O Ever-Virgin Mother of God, shelter of mankind, / you have given a powerful legacy to your people, / your immaculate body's tunic and girdle which remain incorrupt through your pure childbirth. / For in you time and nature are renewed, / and we implore you to obtain peace for the world and great mercy for our souls.

Kontakion – Tone 2
Your precious girdle, O Mother of God, / which encircled the womb that held God / is an invincible strength for your flock / and an unfailing treasury of grace, O Ever-Virgin Mother.
