Troparia and kontakia for September 10

Afterfeast of the Nativity of the Mother of God

Troparion — Tone 4

Your Nativity, O Virgin, / Has proclaimed joy to the whole universe! / The Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God, / Has shone from You, O Theotokos! / By annulling the curse, / He bestowed a blessing. / By destroying death, He has granted us eternal Life.

Kontakion — Tone 4

By Your Nativity, O Most Pure Virgin, / Joachim and Anna are freed from barrenness; / Adam and Eve, from the corruption of death. / And we, your people, freed from the guilt of sin, celebrate and sing to you: / The barren woman gives birth to the Theotokos, the nourisher of our life!

Martyr Menodora at Nicomedia

Troparion — Tone 4

O Holy Martyrs, / You wisely exchanged horrible torture and bitter death for Eternal Life! / Three virgins, you confessed the unoriginate Trinity at an evil council, / And for this reason were slain by the sword, / Following the way of the Lamb who was slain! / Now ever pray for us / Who commemorate your holy memory!

Troparion — Tone 1

Let all who rejoice at their triumph honor these three virgin martyrs, / who are united to God as sisters and who pour forth fair streams of grace: / Menodora, Metrodora, and Nymphodora, / who were in all things courageous; / they ever pray to the Trinity for us.

Kontakion — Tone 4

Invincible in your struggles for the Holy Trinity, / And through your love for each other as sisters, / You defeated the foe of your spiritual life, / And with the five virgins, entered victoriously into the Heavenly Mansions / Where you ever rejoice with the angels in the presence of the King of All!

Martyr Menodora at Nicomedia
