Venerable Abramius the Recluse of Mesopotamia - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 1

The image of God was truly preserved in you, O Father, / for you took up the Cross and followed Christ. / By so doing you taught us to disregard the flesh for it passes away / but to care instead for the soul, since it is immortal. / Therefore your spirit, venerable Abramius, rejoices with the angels.

Troparion — Tone 1

You abandoned all earthly comforts, O Father Abramius, / Living righteously in hope of things to come and receiving a sacred anointing. / Initiated into divine mysteries, you enlighten those who cry: / Glory to him who has strengthened you! / Glory to him who has granted you a crown! / Glory to him who through you works healing for all!

Kontakion — Tone 3

You lived in the flesh on earth as an angel, / and through your ascetic life you became like a tree nourished by the waters of abstinence and flourished. / You have washed away stains with the streams of your tears / and so you have been revealed, Abramius, to be a god-like vessel of the Spirit.
