Venerable Moses the Black of Scete

Troparion — Tone 1

You abandoned the Egypt of the passions, O Father, / Ascending the mount of the virtues with fervent faith, / Taking the Cross of Christ upon your shoulders; / And being glorified in godly works, / You proved to be a model for monastics, O summit of the fathers. / Pray unceasingly with them that our souls may find mercy!

Kontakion — Tone 3

Your mind was filled with a holy inspiration from God, / Turning you from the lust and pleasures of the flesh, / Bringing you to the height of the city of God! / O Holy Father Moses, intercede with Christ God that He may grant us great mercy!
