Afterfeast of the Meeting of our Lord in the Temple

Troparion — Tone 1

Rejoice, O Virgin Theotokos, full of grace! / From you shone the Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God. / Enlightening those who sat in darkness! / Rejoice, and be glad, O righteous elder; / You accepted in your arms the Redeemer of our souls, / Who grants us the Resurrection.

Kontakion — Tone 1

By Your nativity, You did sanctify the Virgin’s womb, / And did bless Simeon’s hands, O Christ God. / Now You have come and saved us through love. / Grant peace to all Orthodox Christians, O only Lover of man!

St Parthenius the Bishop of Lampsacus on the Hellespont

Troparion — Tone 4

In truth you were revealed to your flock as a rule of faith, / an image of humility and a teacher of abstinence; / your humility exalted you; / your poverty enriched you. / Hierarch Father Parthenius, / entreat Christ our God / that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion — Tone 3

Podoben: “Today the Virgin...” / You received divine grace to work miracles, / wise and holy God-bearing wonderworker Parthenius. / You cleansed the passions of all the faithful / and drove out evil spirits. / Therefore, we praise you as a great initiate of the grace of God.
