Troparia and kontakia for September 26

Repose of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian

Troparion — Tone 2

Beloved apostle of Christ our God, / hasten to deliver a defenseless people. / He who allowed you to recline on His breast, / receives you as you bow before Him. / Implore Him, John the Theologian, / to disperse the persistent threat from the heathens, / entreating for us peace and great mercy.

Kontakion — Tone 2

Who shall declare your greatness, / O virgin disciple, / for you pour forth wonders and are a source of healings, / and pray for our souls as Theologian and friend of Christ.
