Troparia and kontakia for November 18

Martyr Platon of Ancyra

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyrs Plato and Romanus, O Lord, / through their sufferings have received incorruptible crowns from You, our God. / For having Your strength, they laid low their adversaries, / and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through their intercessions, save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 3

Podoben: “Today the Virgin...” / Your holy memory delights the universe, O Plato, / bringing us together to honor you in our joy! / With hymns we praise your great deeds / crying out to you with faith: / “Save our land from its enemies, O Holy one!”
