Saint John the Faster, Patriarch of Constantinople - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

In truth you were revealed to your flock as a rule of faith, / an image of humility and a teacher of abstinence; / your humility exalted you; / your poverty enriched you. / Hierarch Father John, / entreat Christ our God / that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion — Tone 4

You became like your namesake, the Forerunner, O John, / For you were radiant with fasting and purity; / And Christ has revealed you / As a worthy shepherd of his flock: / Now pray for those who honor your holy memory!
