Venerable Theodore the Confessor the Abbot of the Studion

Troparion — Tone 8

O champion of Orthodoxy, teacher of purity and of true worship, / The enlightener of the universe and the adornment of the hierarchs: / O all-wise Father Theodore, your teachings have gleamed with light upon all things. / Intercede before Christ our God to save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 2

You girded yourself with every ascetic practice / To protect your angelic life, / With the grace of God you conquered, / Becoming like the angels. / Never cease to intercede with them, O Theodore, before Christ our God, / That He may have mercy on us all!

St Martin the Merciful the Bishop of Tours

Troparion — Tone 4

In signs and in miracles you were renowned throughout Gaul. / By grace and adoption you are a light for the world, O Martin, blessed of God. / Almsdeeds and compassion filled your life with their splendors, / Teaching and wise counsel were your riches and treasures, / Which you dispense freely to those who honor you.

Kontakion — Tone 8

As a devoted man of God, you proclaimed His mysteries, / And as a seer of the Trinity, you shed your blessings on the Occident. / By your prayers and entreaties, O adornment of Tours and glory of all the Church, / Preserve us, O Saint Martin, and save all who praise your memory.
