Troparia and kontakia for October 15

Venerable Euthymius the New of Thessalonica, and Monk of Mount Athos

Troparion — Tone 8

The image of God was truly preserved in you, O Father, / for you took up the Cross and followed Christ. / By so doing you taught us to disregard the flesh for it passes away / but to care instead for the soul, since it is immortal. / Therefore your spirit, venerable Euthymius, rejoices with the angels.

Kontakion — Tone 2

Crossing dryshod through the storms of life, / venerable and divinely wise Euthymius, / you mightily drowned the bodiless foe in the streams of your tears; / you received the gift of miracles to heal all sufferings. / Unceasingly pray for us all.

Martyr Lucian the Presbyter of Antioch

Troparion — Tone 3

Radiant with the Spirit, / You taught true knowledge of the true faith; / A trainer of martyrs, O Lucian, / You were glorified in contest. / Intercede with Christ our God that he may grant us great mercy!

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr Lucian, O Lord, / through his suffering 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

We honor you with hymns of glory, / Lucian, the radiant star. / You first became radiant by your detachment from the things of this world; / then you were raised up by your struggle. / Unceasingly pray for us all.
