Commemoration of the Great Earthquake at Constantinople

Troparion — Tone 8

Christ our God, You look the earth and it trembles; / deliver us from the terrible threat of earthquakes; / and through the prayers of the Theotokos, send down upon us / Your abundant mercy and save us.

Kontakion — Tone 6

Deliver us all from upheavals, and from terrible afflictions caused by our sins, O Lord, / and spare Your people people whom You have purchased with Your blood, O Master. / Do not deliver Your city to destruction by terrible earthquakes, / for we know no other God than You; / and to those who cry out You respond: / “I am with you and no one will be against you.”
