Troparia and kontakia for August 11

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!

Martyr and Archdeacon Euplus of Catania

Troparion — Tone 4

As a holy deacon and righteous minister of the Church of Christ, / You contended superbly. / You sailed over the sea of many torments and afflictions, / O all-bless Euplus. / Guide us into the haven of heaven.

Kontakion — Tone 1

When the love of Christ was your only defense, / You stood in the midst of your fight and said: / I endure this struggle willingly and with confidence! / You rejoiced, O Euplus, to offer your head to the sword and so complete your course!
