Hieromartyr Cornelius the Centurion

Troparion — Tone 4

O Blessed Cornelius, / You were distinguished in works of righteousness. / You received the enlightenment of godliness, / And were a fellow-laborer with the Apostles, / For you shared in their work, / Preaching Christ’s incarnation to all. / With them pray that all who honor your memory may be saved!

Kontakion — Tone 4

O Divinely minded Cornelius, / The Church, receiving you as a blessed first-fruit of the Gentiles, / Is enlightened by your holy life, / For you are a perfect seer of the Mysteries!
