Troparia and kontakia for February 14

Venerable Auxentius of Bithynia

Troparion — Tone 1

Dweller of the desert and angel in the body, / you were shown to be a wonder-worker, our God-bearing Father Auxentius. / You received heavenly gifts through fasting, vigil, and prayer: / healing the sick and the souls of those drawn to you by faith. / Glory to Him who gave you strength! / Glory to Him who granted you a crown! / Glory to Him who through you grants healing to all!

Kontakion — Tone 2

You delighted in abstinence, / restraining the desires of the flesh. / Divinely wise and holy Father Auxentius, / you were revealed to be shining with faith, / blossoming like a plant in the midst of paradise.

Repose of St Cyril, Equal of the Apostles and Teacher of the Slavs

Troparion — Tone 4

Wisdom was your sister from birth; / You loved her, O voice of God, as a pure virgin / Who adorned your soul and mind as a precious jewel, / So revealing you, O blessed man, to be another Cyril: / Wise in name and understanding!
