Troparia and kontakia for June 9

Saint Cyril, Archbishop of Alexandria

Troparion — Tone 1

With all reverence let us praise a light of the world, / the great orator and champion of the Mother of God. / For by his fiery teachings / he burned up the heresy of Nestorius; / therefore, let us cry out to him: / “Divine Cyril, intercede with Christ to strengthen the Orthodox Faith.”

Kontakion — Tone 6

You have openly poured out upon us the depth of the teachings of theology, / drawing from the well-springs of the Savior; / you drowned heresies / and saved your flock unharmed from triple waves. / Blessed and venerable Cyril, / you are shown to be a guide for all lands, revealing things divine

Saint Columba of Iona, Enlightener of Scotland

Troparion — Tone 5

By your God-inspired life / you embodied both the mission and the dispersion of the Church, / most glorious Father Columba. / Using your repentance and voluntary exile, / Christ our God raised you up as a beacon of the True Faith, / an apostle to the heathen and an indicator of the Way of salvation. / Wherefore O holy one, cease not to intercede for us / that our souls may be saved.
