Venerable Mary of Egypt - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

The image of God was truly preserved in you, O mother, / For you took up the Cross and followed Christ. / By so doing, you taught us to disregard the flesh, for it passes away; / But to care instead for the soul, since it is immortal. / Therefore your spirit, O holy Mother Mary, rejoices with the Angels.

Kontakion — Tone 3

Having been a sinful woman, / You became through repentance a Bride of Christ. / Having attained angelic life, / You defeated demons with the weapon of the Cross; / Therefore, O most glorious Mary you are a Bride of the Kingdom!
