Troparia and kontakia for June 6

Postfeast of Pentecost — 3rd Day of the Trinity

Troparion — Tone 8

Blessed art 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!

Venerable Bessarion the Wonderworker of Egypt

Troparion — Tone 4

O God of our Fathers, / Always act with kindness towards us; / take not Your mercy from us, / but guide our lives in peace / through the prayers of the venerable Bessarion and Hilarion the New.

Kontakion — Tone 2

You imitated the powers on high, venerable Bessarion, / living by example the life of those who take flight. / Led by steadfast desire to the heavenly good things of Christ the King, / you put passing things from your mind and attained to Him. / Entreat Him without ceasing for the sake of us all!

Venerable Hilarion the New, Abbot of the Dalmatian Monastery
