The Placing of the Honorable Robe of the Most Holy Mother of God at Blachernae - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

Ever-Virgin Theotokos, protectress of mankind, you have given your people a powerful legacy: / the robe and sash of your most honored body, which remained incorrupt throughout your seedless childbearing; for through you time and nature are renewed! / Therefore we implore you: “Grant peace to your people and to our souls great mercy!”

Kontakion — Tone 4

O Pure One, full of the grace of God, / you have given your sacred robe as a garment of incorruption to all the faithful, / with it you covered your holy body, O divine protection of all mankind. / We celebrate its enshrinement in Blachernae with love and we cry aloud with awe: / “Rejoice, O Virgin, boast of Christians.”
