Troparia and kontakia for October 20

Greatmartyr Artemius at Antioch

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr Artemios, O Lord, / Through his sufferings has received an incorruptible crown from You, our God. / For having Your strength, he laid low his adversaries, / And shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through his intercessions, save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 2

Let us gather to sing worthy hymns in honor of Artemios, / The pious and victorious martyr who defeated his enemies: / He is great among martyrs and generous in performing miracles, / And he intercedes with the Lord on behalf of us all!

Venerable Gerasimus the New Ascetic of Cephalonia

Troparion — Tone 1

Let us the faithful praise the divine Gerasimos, / who is the protector of the Orthodox, and an angel in the body, and a newly appeared God-bearing wonderworker; / for he has worthily received from God the unfailing grace of healing; / he restores the sick, and heals those possessed by demons; / therefore, he pours forth healings upon those who honor him.

Kontakion — Tone 3

Podoben: "Today the Virgin"
Today the island of Cephalonia / with sacred songs of thanksgiving, / calls upon all the Orthodox to extol the newly appeared boast and glory of Orthodoxy, / the divine Gerasimos, / who is truly her deliverer and champion.
