Greatmartyr Irene of Thessalonica - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

Your lamb Irene calls out to You, O Jesus, in a loud voice: / “I love You, my Bridegroom, and in seeking You I endure suffering. / In baptism I was crucified so that I might reign in You, / and I died so that I might live with You. / Accept me as a pure sacrifice, / for I have offered myself in love.” / Through her prayers save our souls, since You are merciful.

Kontakion — Tone 4

Podoben: “Today You have shown forth...” / Adorned with the beauty of virginity, / you became more beautiful in your struggle, virgin martyr Irene. / You were empurpled by the flow of your blood, / having destroyed the temptation of godlessness. / Therefore you received the prize of victory from the hand of your Creator.
