Troparia and kontakia for November 6

St Paul the Confessor the Archbishop of Constantinople

Troparion — Tone 3

For confessing the divine faith, / among her priests the Church has shown you to be another Paul. / Abel cries out to the Lord together with you, as does the righteous blood of Zachariah. / Venerable father, entreat Christ God to grant us His great mercy.

Kontakion — Tone 4

Paul, you shone on the earth like a star of heavenly splendor; / now you enlighten the universal Church for which you suffered, / for you laid down your life, / and your blood cries out to the Lord like that of Zachariah and Abel.
