Troparia and kontakia for October 29

Martyr Anastasia the Roman

Troparion — Tone 4

Your lamb Anastasia, calls out to You, O Jesus, in a loud voice: / “I love You, my Bridegroom, and in seeking You I endure suffering. / In baptism I was crucified so that I might reign in You, / and I died so that I might live with You. / Accept me as a pure sacrifice, / for I have offered myself in love.” / Through her prayers save our souls, since You are merciful.

Kontakion — Tone 3

Purified by the waters of virginity, / righteous Anastasia, you were crowned by the blood of martyrdom. / You grant healing and salvation to those in need, / and who call on you from their hearts, / for Christ gives you strength, pouring out on you ever-flowing grace!

Venerable Abramius the Recluse of Mesopotamia

Troparion — Tone 1

The image of God was truly preserved in you, O Father, / for you took up the Cross and followed Christ. / By so doing doing you taught us to disregard the flesh for it passes away / but to care instead for the soul, since it is immortal. / Therefore your spirit, venerable Abramius, rejoices with the angels.

Troparion — Tone 1

You abandoned all earthly comforts, O Father Abramius, / Living righteously in hope of things to come and receiving a sacred anointing. / Initiated into divine mysteries, you enlighten those who cry: / Glory to him who has strengthened you! / Glory to him who has granted you a crown! / Glory to him who through you works healing for all!

Kontakion — Tone 3

You lived in the flesh on earth as an angel, / and through your ascetic life you became like a tree nourished by the waters of abstinence and flourished. / You have washed away stains with the streams of your tears / and so you have been revealed, Abramius, to be a god-like vessel of the Spirit.

Venerable Abramius the Archimandrite of Rostov

Troparion — Tone 1

You abandoned all earthly comforts, O Father Abramius, / Living righteously in hope of things to come and receiving a sacred anointing. / Initiated into divine mysteries, you enlighten those who cry: / Glory to him who has strengthened you! / Glory to him who has granted you a crown! / Glory to him who through you works healing for all!

Kontakion — Tone 3

You lived on earth as an angel in the flesh / And flourished as a well-planted tree, watered by abstinence and tears, / O Abramius, vessel of the Holy Spirit!
