Troparia and kontakia for October 20

Greatmartyr Artemius at Antioch

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr Artemios, O Lord, / Through his sufferings 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 gather to sing worthy hymns in honor of Artemios, / The pious and victorious martyr who defeated his enemies: / He is great among martyrs and generous in performing miracles, / And he intercedes with the Lord on behalf of us all!

Venerable Gerasimus the New Ascetic of Cephalonia

Troparion — Tone 1

Let us praise divine Gerasimos the protector and champion of Orthodoxy, / An angel in the flesh and a God-inspired wonder-worker. / He received from God the gift of healing / And grants cures to those who honor him!

Kontakion — Tone 3

Today the island of Cephalonia / Calls upon multitudes of Orthodox to praise godly Gerasimos, / Boast of Orthodoxy, its defender and champion.
