Blessed Basil of Moscow the Fool-For-Christ - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

Your life, O Basil, was true and your chastity undefiled. / In fasting, vigilance and exposure to heat and frost / you subdued your flesh for the sake of Christ. / Therefore your countenance shone with the brilliance of the sun. / Today the faithful glorify your holy falling-asleep. / Implore Christ to deliver us from all bondage, dissension and war, / and to grant great mercy to our souls!
