Troparia and kontakia for July 5

Uncovering of the relics of the Venerable Sergius of Radonezh

Troparion — Tone 8

From your youth you received Christ into your soul, O venerable one, / and above all desired to leave behind the turmoil of the world. / You courageously settled in the wilderness, where you raised children in obedience, the fruits of humility. / Thus, as an abode of the Trinity, you enlightened all who approached in faith and granted healing to all. / Our Father Sergius, pray to Christ God that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Having risen from the earth today and shining like the sun, / your precious and incorrupt relics are as fragrant flowers, scented with miracles, / granting healing to all the faithful, and making glad your flock which you wisely gathered and tended. / Now as you stand before the throne of the Trinity, entreat God’s help and grace for them and for all Orthodox Christians, / so that we may sing: “Rejoice, divinely-wise Sergius.”
