Troparia & Kontakia and Propers for the Day

                                Troparia & Kontakia for January 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.


Propers for the Days


4th – Synaxis of the 70
Troparion - Tone 3


With divine faith you caught the nations, / O Seventy Apostles of the Lord; / and you lead them into the knowledge of God / as those who had received the grace of the Spirit. / O inspired initiates, intercede with Christ our God // that He grant us His great mercy.


Kontakion - Tone 2


Let us praise the choirs of Christ's Seventy Disciples,/ and celebrate their festival, O faithful. / They have taught us to worship the Undivided Trinity; / for they are divine lamps of the Faith.


11th – St. Theodosius
Troparion - Tone 5


You shone forth in God-given virtues, O righteous Theodosius, / and you were an illustrious model of the monastic life. / You were seen as a God-like light and leader, / the emulator of Angels and servant of the Trinity. // Pray to God unceasingly to have mercy on our souls.


Kontakion - Tone 8


You were planted in the courts of the Lord, / and blossomed with holy virtues; / you increased your children in the desert / and irrigate it with the rain of your tears, / O Shepherd of God's divine sheep folds. // Wherefore we cry: O Father Theodosius, rejoice.


18th – Sts Athanasius & Cyril
Troparion - Tone 3


You shone with words of Orthodoxy and quench all heresy, / and became victorious trophy-bearers. / You enriched all things with piety and greatly adorned the Church, / and worthily found Christ our God; // by your prayers He grants mercy to all.


Kontakion - Tone 4


Great Hierarchs and champions of Christ's Church, / preserve all who sing: // O compassionate Lord, save those who with faith honor you!


Kontakion - Tone 2


Planting Orthodox doctrine, / you cut down the tares of heresy,/ causing the seed of faith to increase/ through the rain of the Spirit, O ven’rable one.// Wherefore, we hymn you, O Athanasius.


25th – St. Gregory the Theologian
Troparion - Tone 1


The sweet-sounding shepherd's pipe of your theology / overpowered the trumpeting of the orators; / for having searched the depths of the Spirit / eloquence was also bestowed upon you. // Intercede with Christ our God / that our souls may be saved, O Father Gregory.


Kontakion - Tone 3


With your theologian's speech / you dispelled the philosopher's cobwebs, O glo-rious Gregory; / and you adorn the robe of Orthodoxy woven for the Church from on high. / Wearing this, she cries out with us your children:// Rejoice, O Father, most excellent mind of theology.
