Troparia and kontakia for March 3

Sunday of the Prodigal Son

Kontakion — Tone 3

I have recklessly forgotten Your glory, O Father; / and among sinners I have scattered the riches which You had given me. / Therefore, I cry to You like the Prodigal: / “I have sinned before You, O compassionate Father; / receive me a penitent and make me as one of Your hired servants.”

Martyr Eutropius of Amasea

Troparion — Tone 4

Let us praise Eutropius, Basiliscus and divine Cleonicus, / The three holy athletes of Christ. / They surpassed human endurance in their contests / And professed the supremacy of the Trinity. / Now they ceaselessly intercede that we all may be saved!

Kontakion — Tone 4

Eutropius, Basiliscus and Cleonicus, / Bound together in unity of faith, / By their noble contest speedily destroyed the enemies’ ranks!
