St Abercius the Bishop and Wonderworker of Hieropolis, Equal of the Apostles - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

You appeared to your flock as a rule of faith, / An Image of humility and a teacher of abstinence. / Because of your lowliness, Heaven was opened to you, / Because of your poverty, riches were granted to you. / O Holy Bishop Abercius, pray to Christ our God to save our souls!

Troparion — Tone 5

You emulated the zeal of the Apostles / and shone forth like a morning star, / and your works showed your God-given power: / you guided the erring to God, / O hierarch Abercius.

Kontakion — Tone 4

All the Church honors you, Abercius, / The Great Bishop equal to the Apostles! / O blessed one worthy of all praise, / Through your intercession / Keep the Church victorious, calm and unshaken.

Kontakion — Tone 8

The whole Church honors you as a great hierarch / and as a companion to the Apostles. / By your prayers keep the Church unconquered and unshaken by heresy, glorious Abercius.
