Appearance of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

Zealous Intercessor, Mother of the Lord Most High, / you pray to your Son, Christ our God for all, and save all who have recourse to your powerful protection. / Defend us, O Lady, Queen and Mistress, / when we, burdened with many sins, stand before you in misfortune, sorrow, and sickness, / praying to you with a tender soul and a contrite heart, / before this, your most pure Image, with tears, and having steadfast hope in you who deliver (us) from all evils. / Grant to us what is profitable for our souls and save all, O Virgin Theotokos, / for you are the Divine protection of your servants.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Let us run to the gracious and quiet haven / The fervent helper, ardent and eager to save all. / Let us run to the Virgin’s protection and hasten to repentance. / The pure Theotokos grants us unfailing mercy / She comes to help all, delivering her faithful servants from tribulations!
