Troparia and kontakia for August 28

Uncovering of the relics of the Venerable Job, Abbot and Wonderworker of Pochaev

Troparion — Tone 4

Having acquired the patience of your Forefather, / and having resembled the Baptist in abstinence, / you shared the divine zeal of both / and were counted worthy to receive their names. / You were a fearless preacher of the True Faith; / in this way you brought a multitude of monastics to Christ. / You strengthened all people in Orthodoxy, / Job, our venerable father; / pray that our souls may be saved

Kontakion — Tone 4

Podoben: “Today You have shown forth...” / You were a pillar of the True Faith; / a zealot of the commandments of the Gospel; / a denouncer of pride, / and a defender and teacher of the humble. / Therefore, those who honor you pray for the remission of their sins, / and that this, your holy habitation, be kept safe from all harm, / Job, our father, who resembled the long-suffering Patriarch of old.

Venerable Moses the Ethiopian of Scete

Troparion — Tone 1

You abandoned the Egypt of the passions, O Father, / Ascending the mount of the virtues with fervent faith, / Taking the Cross of Christ upon your shoulders; / And being glorified in godly works, / You proved to be a model for monastics, O summit of the fathers. / Pray unceasingly with them that our souls may find mercy!

Kontakion — Tone 3

Your mind was filled with a holy inspiration from God, / Turning you from the lust and pleasures of the flesh, / Bringing you to the height of the city of God! / O Holy Father Moses, intercede with Christ God that He may grant us great mercy!
