Troparia and kontakia for August 10

Afterfeast of the Transfiguration of our Lord

Troparion — Tone 7

You were Transfigured on the Mount, O Christ God, / Revealing Your glory to Your disciples as far as they could bear it. / Let Your everlasting Light shine upon us sinners! / Through the prayers of the Theotokos, O Giver of Light, glory to You!

Kontakion — Tone 7

On the Mountain You were Transfigured, O Christ God, / And Your disciples beheld Your glory as far as they could see it; / So that when they would behold You crucified, / They would understand that Your suffering was voluntary, / And would proclaim to the world, / That You are truly the Radiance of the Father!

Martyr and Archdeacon Laurence of Rome

Troparion — Tone 4

Victorious martyr of Christ our God, / by the sign of the Cross you gave sight to the blind; / you distributed the riches of the Church to the poor; / you were tried by fire and no evil was found in you. / As you endured the burning, / may your prayers extinguish the flames of our many sins, / blessed Archdeacon Lawrence!

Kontakion — Tone 2

Your heart burned with divine fire / as the flames of the passions died within you. / God-bearing martyr Lawrence, the pillar of those who struggle, / you cried out in the midst of your contest: / “Nothing can separate me from the love of Christ.”
