Holy Apostle Philip, / entreat the merciful God / to grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Your disciple, friend and imitator of Your passion, / the God-preaching Philip, proclaimed You to the universe! / By his prayers deliver Your Church from her enemies; / through the Theotokos protect every city, most merciful Christ!

St Gregory Palamas the Archbishop of Thessalonica

Troparion — Tone 8

O light of Orthodoxy, teacher of the Church, its confirmation, / O ideal of monks and invincible champion of theologians, / O wonder-working Gregory, glory of Thessalonica and preacher of grace, / always intercede before the Lord that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Holy and divine instrument of wisdom, / joyful trumpet of theology, / together we sing your praises, O God-inspired Gregory. / Since you now stand before the Original Mind, guide our minds to Him, O Father, / so that we may sing to you: “Rejoice, preacher of grace.”
