Righteous Elizabeth the mother of St John the Baptist

Troparion — Tone 2

The memory of Your prophets Zachariah and Elizabeth / We celebrate today, O Lord. / By their prayers, we beseech You, / O Christ God, save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 4

As the full moon brightly reflects the light of the sun, / you reflected the glory of the Messiah, the Light of wisdom! / With Zachariah you walked in all of the Lord’s commandments, Elizabeth, beloved by God. / So as we bless you with fitting songs, / we praise the Lord, the bountiful Light, Who enlightens all.
