Troparia and kontakia for June 23

Holy Pentecost

Troparion — Tone 8

Blessed art You O Christ Our God / You have revealed the fishermen as most wise / By sending down upon them the Holy Spirit / Through them You drew the world into Your net / O Lover of Man, Glory to You!

Kontakion — Tone 8

When the most High came down and confused the tongues, / He divided the nations; / But when he distributed the tongues of fire / He called all to unity. / Therefore, with one voice, we glorify the All-holy Spirit!

Martyr Agrippina of Rome

Troparion — Tone 4

Your lamb Agrippina calls out to You, O Jesus, in a loud voice: / "I love You, my Bridegroom, and in seeking You I endure suffering. / In baptism I was crucified so that I might reign in You, / and I died so that I might live with You. / Accept me as a pure sacrifice, / for I have offered myself in love." / Through her prayers save our souls, since You are merciful.

Kontakion — Tone 4

Podoben: “Today You have shown forth...” / The day has come on which the Church commemorates your radiant contest and martyrdom. / She calls upon all to cry to you with gladness: / “Rejoice, all-honored virgin-martyr Agrippina.”

Meeting of the Vladimir Icon of the Mother of God in memory of the Saving of Moscow from the Invasion of Khan Achmed

Troparion — Tone 4

O Mistress, Empress and Lady, / Defend all who are in danger and misfortune / Or weak from many sins, / And who stand before your holy Icon / Praying with tears, humility, repentance, and invincible hope, / Free them from all evil, / Give them the grace they need. / And save us all, O Virgin Mother of God, / For You are the divine refuge of those who follow you!
