Troparia and kontakia for April 6

3rd Saturday of Great Lent: Memorial Saturday

Troparion — Tone 8

Only Creator, with wisdom profound, You mercifully order all things, / and give that which is needed to all men: / Give rest, O Lord, to the souls of Your servants who have fallen asleep, / for they have placed their trust in You, our Maker and Fashioner, and our God.

Kontakion — Tone 8

With the saints give rest, O Christ, to the souls of Your servants, / where there is neither sickness nor sorrow, and no more sighing, / but life everlasting.

St Eutychius the Patriarch of Constantinople

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 Eutychius, / entreat Christ our God / that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Let us all chant with faith and love, O people, / blessing the godly Eutychius as a great pastor and minister, / an all-wise teacher and expeller of heresies, / for he entreats the Lord on behalf of us all!

Venerable Gregory the Byzantine

Troparion — Tone 5

You reflected the angelic life, / And your soul was a vessel of insight. / O holy Father Gregory, radiant torch of virtues, / The glory of Sinai and Athos and enlightener of the Slavic lands, / Guide us unerringly, that our souls may be saved!
