Troparia and kontakia for June 19

Apostle Jude the Brother of the Lord

Troparion — Tone 1

Divinely we praise you, O Jude, as a faithful witness, / Knowing you to be the brother of Christ. / You trampled on delusion, / And so preserved the faith. / Today as we celebrate your holy memory, / By your intercessions we receive remission of sins.

Kontakion — Tone 2

You were chosen as a disciple for your firmness of mind: / An unshakable pillar of the Church of Christ, / You proclaimed His word to the Gentiles, / Telling them to believe in one Godhead. / You were glorified by Him, receiving the grace of healing, / Healing the ills of all who came to you, / O most praised Apostle Jude!

Venerable Paisius the Great

Troparion — Tone 4

The sublime monk and incarnate angel, / The bodiless man and citizen of heaven, / As he celebrates with us today, / Grants grace to all who honor him. / Let us fervently magnify him!

Kontakion — Tone 8

Let us, the faithful, sing praises to divinely-wise Paisius / The desert’s adornment, equal-to-the-angels, Christ’s friend and the glory of monks. / Let us cry to him: Rejoice, O Father Paisius!
