Troparia and kontakia for June 21

Martyr Julian of Tarsus, in Cilicia

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr Julian, O Lord, / through his suffering has received an incorruptible crown from You, our God. / For having Your strength, he laid low his adversaries, / and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through his intercessions save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 2

Let us all worthily praise Julian today, / the unconquerable pious warrior and seeker of truth; / to him let us cry out: / pray to Christ God for us all.

Venerable Anastasia of Serbia

Troparion — Tone 4

Abundant in virtue, and adorned with meekness and piety, / you shone forth through the purity of your life; / therefore, you were granted the grace to be the mother of our people’s Luminary. / Thus, we cry aloud to you: “Rejoice, O venerable mother Anastasia!”

Kontakion — Tone 4

Having been blessed by marriage, and living a life of sobriety, / you humbly taught your children to love God above all else. / As you now stand before Him, / intercede for us who cry aloud to you: / “Rejoice, O venerable mother Anastasia!”
