Venerable Joannicius the Great

Troparion — Tone 8

By a flood of tears you made the desert fertile, / And your longing for God brought forth fruits in abundance. / By the radiance of miracles you illumined the whole universe! / O our holy father Joannicius, pray to Christ our God to save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 4

Today we celebrate together your honored memory, / And we faithfully beseech you, O holy Joannicius / That we may find mercy with the Lord!
