Venerable Nilus the Faster of Sinai

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! / Our Father Nilus, pray to Christ God to save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 8

By your vigilant prayer you cut away the undergrowth of the body’s insurgent passions. / As you have boldness before the Lord, free me from every danger so that I may cry to you: / “Rejoice, universal father Nilus.”
