Troparia and kontakia for May 16

Venerable Theodore the Sanctified, Disciple of the Venerable Pachomius the Great

Troparion — Tone 1

Dweller of the desert and angel in the body, / you were shown to be a wonder-worker, our God-bearing Father Theodore. / 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 granted you a crown! / Glory to Him who through you grants healing to all!

Kontakion — Tone 2

You flourished like a palm tree in the house of God, / bringing forth the fruit of virtues for the Lord through your ascetic efforts. / Therefore, you are called blest, venerable Father Theodore, / for you are equal to the bodiless ones!
