Troparia and kontakia for August 27

Venerable Pimen the Great

Troparion — Tone 8

By a flood of tears you made the desert fertile, / and your longing for God brought forth fruits in abundance. / By the radiance of miracles you illumined the whole universe! / Our Father Pimen, pray to Christ God to save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 4

The memorial of your illustrious struggles / delights the souls of the devout today, / Pimen, our venerable father, wise in God.

St Phanourius

Troparion — Tone 4

A heavenly song of praise is chanted radiantly upon the earth / The company of angels now joyfully celebrates an earthly festival, / And from on high with hymns they praise your contests, / And from below, the church proclaims the heavenly glory / which you have found by your labors and struggles, / O glorious Phanourios.

Kontakion — Tone 3

You saved the priests from an ungodly captivity, / And broke their bonds by divine power, O godly-minded one; / You bravely put to shame the audacity of the tyrants, / And made glad the orders of the angels, O great martyr. / Therefore, we honor you, O divine warrior, glorious Phanourios.
