Troparia and kontakia for June 1

Martyr Justin the Philosopher and those with him at Rome

Troparion — Tone 4

O Justin, teacher of divine knowledge, / You shone with the radiance of true philosophy. / You were wisely armed against the enemy. / Confessing the truth you contended alongside the martyrs, / With them, ever entreat Christ our God to save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 2

The whole Church of God is adorned with the wisdom of your divine words, O Justin; / the world is enlightened by the radiance of your life. / By the shedding of your blood, you have received a crown. / As you stand before Christ with the angels, pray unceasingly for us all!

Venerable Dionysius, Abbot of Glushitsa, Vologda

Troparion — Tone 1

Inflamed with divine love from your youth, O venerable Dionysius, and despising all earthly attractions, you came to love Christ alone, / and for His sake, you settled in the inner wilderness / and lived with the wild animals, entirely for Christ. / Thus, the All-Seeing Eye, having beheld your labors, / enriched you with the gift of miracles, even after your repose. / Therefore, we cry out to you: / Pray unceasingly for us who always revere your honorable memory with hymns of praise.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Turning all of your spiritual longing toward God, steadfastly you followed His call with all your soul. / Having settled in the wilderness and, having lived there in an angelic way, you were a path to salvation for many. / Hence, Christ has glorified you, and enriched you with the gift of miracles. / Therefore, we cry out to you: Hail, Venerable Dionysius, dweller in the wilderness.

Venerable Agapitus the Unmercenary Physician of the Kiev Near Caves

Troparion — Tone 5

O righteous Agapitus, you healed the infirm with edible herbs, / And with humility like Anthony the Great. / So doing, you brought the unbelieving physician to the Faith, / Guiding him on the path of salvation. / Heal our infirmities and pray to Christ our God for those who sing to you!

Troparion — Tone 5

You proclaimed your faith as a good physician. / You rebuked the Armenian and brought him to piety. / When dying you asked God for life, / And by this wonder brought him to Christ. / Now standing joyfully before the Lord / Pray for us, O righteous one!
