Venerable Thais of Egypt

Troparion — Tone 4

O God of our fathers, / Do not take your mercy from us, / But ever act towards us according to your kindness / And by the prayers of your Holy Thais, / Guide our lives in peace!

Kontakion — Tone 2

Let us praise the blessed Thais, / The truly fruitful branch from a corrupt root, / The sweet stream from a salty source, / The image of repentance and rule of patience! / Once a vessel of sin, she is now the chosen vessel of grace! / Let us cry aloud to her: / O Venerable Thais, entreat Christ God that our souls may be saved!
