Commemoration of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God and the deliverance from the Poles

Troparion — Tone 4

O fervent Protectress, / Mother of the Lord Most High; / You intercede for all before your Son Christ our God, / Granting salvation to all who seek refuge in your protection. / Protect us all, O Queen and Sovereign Lady, / For we are stricken with grief and wounded by sin. / With tears we stand before your pure Icon, / Praying with contrite souls and humble hearts. / All our hope we place in you, / May we be delivered from evil. / Grant to all what is expedient, / And save all, O Virgin Theotokos: / For you are the Holy Protection of your servants!

Kontakion — Tone 8

Let us run to the gracious and quiet haven / The fervent helper, ardent and eager to save all. / Let us run to the Virgin’s protection and hasten to repentance. / The pure Theotokos grants us unfailing mercy / She comes to help all, delivering her faithful servants from tribulations!
