St Alexander the Patriarch of Constantinople - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

O God of our Fathers, / always act with kindness towards us; / take not Your mercy from us, / but guide our lives in peace / through the prayers of the Patriarchs Alexander, John, and Paul.

Troparion — Tone 4

(Special Melody "Go quickly before")

Christ, the God Who is over all, / has proclaimed you as a venerable shepherd of His Church, O godly-minded Alexander, / a light upon a candlestand, a faithful steward, / a pillar of Orthodoxy, and a most pious example. / Therefore, we rejoice in your memory.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Set aflame by the love of Christ, O glorious ones, / you took up the yoke of His precious Cross revealing yourselves as followers in His footsteps by your way of life, / and you became partakers of His divine glory, / divinely-wise Alexander, with wonderful John and glorious Paul. / As you stand before His throne, earnestly pray for our souls.
