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.
