Venerable Paul the Simple of Egypt - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

In you, o venerable Father Paul, / The image of God shone forth, / For you carried your Cross and followed Christ. / By so doing you taught us to disregard the flesh for it passes away, / And to care instead for the soul since it is immortal, / Wherefore your soul forever rejoices with the angels!
