Troparia and kontakia for January 11

Afterfeast of the Theophany of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

Troparion — Tone 1

When You, O Lord were baptized in the Jordan / the worship of the Trinity was made manifest / for the voice of the Father bore witness to You / and called You His beloved Son. / And the Spirit, in the form of a dove, / confirmed the truthfulness of His word. / O Christ, our God, You have revealed Yourself / and have enlightened the world, glory to You!

Kontakion — Tone 4

Today You have shown forth to the world, O Lord, / and the light of Your countenance has been marked on us. / Knowing You, we sing Your praises. / You have come and revealed Yourself, / O unapproachable Light.

Venerable Theodosius the Great, the Cenobiarch

Troparion — Tone 8

By a flood of tears you made the desert fertile, / and your longing for God brought forth fruits in abundance. / By the radiance of miracles you illumined the whole universe! / Our Father Theodosius, pray to Christ God to save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 8

Planted in the courts of your Lord, you blossomed beautifully with virtue, / and increased your children in the desert, showering them with streams of your tears, / O chief shepherd of the divine flock of God. / Therefore, we cry to you: “Rejoice, Father Theodosius.”
