Prophet Nahum

Troparion — Tone 4

We celebrate the memory / of Your prophet Nahum, O Lord; / through him we beseech You: / Save our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 2

Illumined by the Spirit, / your heart was a vessel of illustrious prophecy, / seeing far-off things as though they were present.

Righteous Philaret the Merciful of Amnia in Asia Minor

Troparion — Tone 3

From the wealth of your faith in God, / You distributed your riches to the poor, O Philaret. / Your life was adorned with compassion / And you glorified the Giver of mercy. / Implore him to have compassion and mercy on those who praise you!

Kontakion — Tone 3

You possessed the spirit of Job in temptations, / And compassionately distributed your wealth to the poor. / You were a living fountain of almsgiving, / And by your manner of life you gladden those who cry: / Rejoice, O Philaret, servant of Christ God!
