Troparia and kontakia for December 2

Prophet Habakkuk

Troparion — Tone 2

We celebrate the memory / of Your prophet Habakkuk, O Lord; / through him we beseech You: / “Save our souls.”

Kontakion — Tone 8

Divinely eloquent Habakkuk, you announced to the world the coming forth of / God from the south, from the Virgin. / Standing on the divine watch, you received a report from the radiant angel: / “You proclaimed the Resurrection of Christ to the world!” / Therefore in gladness we cry out to you: / “Rejoice, splendid adornment of the prophets!”
