Troparia and kontakia for August 8

Afterfeast of the Transfiguration of our Lord

Troparion — Tone 7

You were Transfigured on the Mount, O Christ God, / Revealing Your glory to Your disciples as far as they could bear it. / Let Your everlasting Light shine upon us sinners! / Through the prayers of the Theotokos, O Giver of Light, glory to You!

Kontakion — Tone 7

On the Mountain You were Transfigured, O Christ God, / And Your disciples beheld Your glory as far as they could see it; / So that when they would behold You crucified, / They would understand that Your suffering was voluntary, / And would proclaim to the world, / That You are truly the Radiance of the Father!

St Emilian the Confessor, Bishop of Cyzicus

Troparion — Tone 3

In confessing the Faith you proclaimed Orthodox doctrine / and were unjustly exiled for rebuking the wicked king. / Righteous and glorious Emilian, / the boast of Cyzicus, / entreat Christ God to grant us His great mercy.

Kontakion — Tone 3

The Church for which you suffered / glorifies you in hymns, O Emilian; / you were a valiant champion of the Trinity, / therefore we honor your memory. / Deliver your servants from all assaults of the enemy.
