Troparia and kontakia for June 1

Postfeast of Pentecost — Day of the Holy Spirit

Troparion — Tone 8

Blessed are You O Christ Our God / You have revealed the fishermen as most wise / By sending down upon them the Holy Spirit / Through them You drew the world into Your net / O Lover of Man, Glory to You!

Kontakion — Tone 8

When the most High came down and confused the tongues, / He divided the nations; / But when he distributed the tongues of fire / He called all to unity. / Therefore, with one voice, we glorify the All-holy Spirit!

Martyr Justin the Philosopher and those with him at Rome

Troparion — Tone 4

O Justin, teacher of divine knowledge, / You shone with the radiance of true philosophy. / You were wisely armed against the enemy. / Confessing the truth you contended alongside the martyrs, / With them, ever entreat Christ our God to save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 2

The whole Church of God is adorned with the wisdom of your divine words, O Justin; / the world is enlightened by the radiance of your life. / By the shedding of your blood, you have received a crown. / As you stand before Christ with the angels, pray unceasingly for us all!

Venerable Agapitus the Unmercenary Physician of the Kiev Near Caves

Troparion — Tone 5

O righteous Agapitus, you healed the infirm with edible herbs, / And with humility like Anthony the Great. / So doing, you brought the unbelieving physician to the Faith, / Guiding him on the path of salvation. / Heal our infirmities and pray to Christ our God for those who sing to you!

Troparion — Tone 5

You proclaimed your faith as a good physician. / You rebuked the Armenian and brought him to piety. / When dying you asked God for life, / And by this wonder brought him to Christ. / Now standing joyfully before the Lord / Pray for us, O righteous one!
