Venerable Theoctistus - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

Dedicated as God’s priest from your youth, / you spurned all worldly aims. / O Righteous Theoctistus you were radiant in your solitude / and strict in the training of monks. / Guide those who come to you and lead them in the way of salvation.

Kontakion — Tone 4

You kept your soul pure and presented it to God as his creation. / Enlightened by him, Theoctistus, you rose to the peak of endeavor. / By your works you confirmed the grace that was given to you.
