Troparia and kontakia for November 26

Venerable Alypius the Stylite of Adrianopolis

Troparion — Tone 1

You were a pillar of patient endurance, / having imitated the forefathers, O Venerable One: / Job in suffering, and Joseph in temptations. / You lived like the Bodiless Ones while yet in the flesh, O Alypius, our Father. / Beseech Christ God that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion — Tone 8

The Church glorifies and praises you today, Alypius, / as a perfect example of virtue and the boast of ascetics. / Through your prayers, grant remission of sins to all who venerate your life and your struggles.

Repose of Saint Innocent, first Bishop of Irkutsk

Troparion — Tone 3

Radiant light of the church, / You illumined the earth by your deeds. / Those who drew near to you in faith, you healed and so glorified God. / Therefore, O holy Father Innocent, we beseech you, / Encompass this land with your prayers, / And protect us from all harm and misdeed.

Kontakion — Tone 2

The Trinity delights in you / O Holy Bishop Innocent. / You are divine thunder, a spiritual trumpet, / A planter of the faith and destroyer of heresies. / As you ever stand with the angels, / Entreat without ceasing for us all!

Venerable Nikon “Metanoeite,” the Preacher of Repentance

Troparion — Tone 3

(Podoben: Thy confession of the Divine Faith)
Lakedaimon* rejoices, having the divine coffer of your relics, / which gush forth a fountain of healings, / and protect from afflictions all those who have recourse to you with faith, / O Venerable Father Nikon, / entreat Christ God that He may grant us great mercy.

* Pronounced Lah-keh-DAY-mon

Kontakion — Tone 6

(Podoben: When thou hadst fulfilled Thy dispensation [The Kontakion for Ascension])
Emulating the life of the Angels, you regarded worldly pleasures as refuse, / showing us the path of repentance, O God-bearer and righteous Nikon; / therefore, now we celebrate your memory, / for truly you are a fountain of healings.
