Venerable Euphrosyne of Suzdal - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

The land of Suzdal rejoiceth in your holy memory, / while believers assemble in your all-honorable temple, where now your most glorious memory is celebrated. / O venerable Euphrosyne, pray to Christ God for the salvation of our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 6

The fair Euphrosyne cried out to Christ, / “My sweetest Bridegroom, the sweetness of my love for Thee, / and the graciousness of Thy mercy, inspire my soul with hope. / My heart rejoiceth, enduring difficult labors for Thy name’s sake; / hoping that Thou wilt account me worthy of joy in Thy Bridal Chamber with the wise virgins.” / Therefore, O venerable one, honoring the struggle of thy labors, we entreat thee: / Pray that the doors of the Bridal Chamber will not be closed to us.

Kontakion — Tone 2

By filling the pure vessel of virginity with the oil of prayers and love, / thou didst kindle an unquenchable lamp in thy heart, O venerable one; / and being vigilant, thou didst go forth to meet the Heavenly Bridegroom with them, / and wast accepted into His Bridal Chamber, / where now thou abidest with the angels and the saints, we entreat thee: / pray unto Christ God, to deliver us from the fate of the foolish virgins.*
