Troparia & Kontakia and Propers for the Day


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

2nd – Acindynus, Pegasius, Aphthonius, Elpidephorus, & Anempodistus
Troparion - Tone 2

Blessed is the earth which drank your blood / holy the abode which received your spirits. / You conquered the enemy in the stadium and preached Christ with boldness. / Beseech Him to save our souls, for He is good, O victorious Martyrs.

Kontakion - Tone 4

You received the God-bearing Martyrs Acindynus, / Pegasius, Anempodistus, Aphthonius and Elpidephorus, / into
the enjoyment of Thy goodness and repose, / for they abandoned all things on earth for Thee, O only Good One.

9th – Martyrs Onesiphorus & Porphyrius

Troparion - Tone 3

You sought the delights of heaven and became martyrs of the Lord, / O renowned Onesiphorus and Porphyrius. / Wherefore you drove God's golden chariot on the heavenly course. / O divine Martyrs, entreat Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.

Troparion - Tone 2

The glorious martyrs Onesiphorus and Porphyrius together contested valiantly. / They humbled the enemy's arrogance to the earth and shone with the grace of the uncreated Trinity. / Together with the Angels they now intercede for us all.

16th – Apostle Matthew

Troparion - Tone 3

O holy Apostle Matthew, you heard the Voice of the Word and received the light of faith. / You did abandon the office of publican and proclaim Christ God's Self-emptying. / Ask that those who praise you may receive forgiveness and great mercy.

Kontakion - Tone 4

When you cast away the publican's balance / you took the yoke of righteousness / and became a merchant rich in wisdom. / You preached the Word of truth and rouse the slothful by describing the Last Judgment.

23rd – Sts Amphilochius & Gregory of Agrigentum

Troparion for St Amphilochius - Tone 4

In your purity you were filled with the light of wisdom / and illumined the world with Orthodox doctrine; / for you preached the consubstantial nature of the Trinity and refute heresy. / Wherefore Christ has glorified you, O Hierarch Amphilochius

Troparion for St Gregory - Tone 1

Gregory, you were diligent in your Master's commandments even from your swaddling bands. / You were filled with heavenly gifts and lead to verdant pastures those who cry to you: / Glory to Him Who has strengthened you; / glory to Him Who has crowned you; / glory to Him Who through you grants healings to all.

Kontakion for St. Amphilochius - Tone 2

Holy thunder, spiritual trumpet, / nurse of the faithful and axe of heresy, / Amphilochius servant of the Trinity,/ as you stand with the Angels in God's presence / pray unceasingly for us all.

Kontakion for St. Gregory - Tone 4

With the brilliant rays of the Holy Spirit the Church enlightens the way of those who celebrate your joyful repose, / O righteous, blessed Father Gregory.

30th – Apostle Andrew

Troparion - Tone 4

As the first-called Apostle and brother of their leader / entreat the Master of all to grant peace to the world, O Andrew, / and great mercy to our souls.

Kontakion - Tone 2

Let us praise the divine leader and namesake of courage, / first-called disciple and Peter's kinsman. / For as of old Christ called to him so he now calls to us: / Come, we have found the Desired One.
