Troparia & Kontakia for June 2015
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.
14th – Saints of Carpatho-Rus
Troparion - Tone 8
As a beautiful fruit of the sowing of Your Salvation / the land of Carpatho-Rus offers to You, O Lord / all the Saints that have shone in it. / By their prayers keep the Church and their homeland in deep peace / through the Mother of God, O Most Merciful One.
Kontakion - Tone 3
Today the choir of the Saints who pleased God in their homeland / stands before us in Church and invisibly prays for us to God. / With them the angels glorify Him / all the Saints of the Church of Christ keep festival with them and together they pray for us to the Eternal God
21st – Martyr Julian of Tarsus
Troparion - Tone 5
O inspired Julian, / your mother guided you to become a glorious soldier of Christ. / You were clad in spiritual armour; / therefore you entered the contest and destroyed the enemy, / and now you intercede for us all.
Kontakion - Tone 2
Today we all praise Julian the unconquerable holy warrior, / the champion and vessel of truth to whom we cry: / Intercede with Christ our God for us all.
28th – Holy Unmercenaries Cyrus and John
Troparion - Tone 2
O holy unmercenaries Cyrus and John, / you have the grace of healing, and you heal all those in need, / for you were made worthy of the great gifts of God. / Christ our Savior, the ever-flowing source of all healing worked through you. / The Lord said to you, as equals to the Apostles: / Behold I have given you power over the unclean spirits, power to dispel them, / and heal every illness and infirmity. / By this, you have given healing of the infirmities of souls and bodies.
Kontakion - Tone 2
Inspired by generosity of spirit, you served all without recompense. / Freely you received, O holy ones, so now you give freely to us; / Come visit us and fill our every need. / As in past times you freely healed the ills of all who sought your help, / show your concern for us as well and obtain for us health of mind and spirit and victory over all evil.
