Troparia and kontakia for May 14

Midfeast of Pentecost

Troparion — Tone 8

In the middle of the Feast, O Savior, / Fill my thirsting soul with the waters of godliness, as You did cry to all: / If anyone thirst let him come to me and drink! / O Christ God, Fountain of our life, glory to You!

Kontakion — Tone 4

Christ God, the Creator and Master of all / Cried to all in the midst of the Feast of the law: / Come and draw the water of immortality! / We fall before You and faithfully cry: / Grant us Your bounties, for You are the Fountain of our life!

Martyr Isidore of Chios

Troparion — Tone 4

Enlisted by the King of the Ages, / you spurned the earthly king and his army to boldly preach Christ our God. / Therefore, you have completed your contest and shine forth as His glorious martyr. / Entreat Him to save our souls, for we honor you, blest Isidore.

Kontakion — Tone 3

In your combat with the dragon, / You gained the victory, O martyr Isidore. / As a radiant beacon from Egypt, / You shone forth to illumine all under the sun, / advancing towards Him who shone forth from the Virgin Mother of God, / for whose sake you were slain, O Passion-Bearer, / offering yourself as a fragrant sacrifice.

Kontakion — Tone 4

You have been revealed as a great guide to the world through your prayers, O holy one. / Therefore, we praise you today, / divinely-wise martyr, glorious Isidore.
