Venerable Michael of Maleinus

Troparion — Tone 8

The image of God was truly preserved in you, O Father, / 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 Father Michael, rejoices with the angels.

Kontakion — Tone 2

By your deeds you withered the arrogance of the flesh; / through enlightenment you gave wings to your agility of spirit. / You were revealed as a dwelling place of the Trinity, / Whom you now clearly behold. / Blessed Michael, unceasingly pray for us all.
