Troparia and kontakia for August 17

Afterfeast of the Dormition of the Mother of God

Troparion — Tone 1

In giving birth you preserved your virginity, / In falling asleep you did not forsake the world, O Theotokos. / You were translated to life, O Mother of Life, / And by your prayers, you deliver our souls from death.

Kontakion — Tone 2

Neither the tomb, nor death could hold the Theotokos, / Who is constant in prayer and our firm hope in her intercessions. / For being the Mother of Life, / She was translated to life by the One who dwelt in her virginal womb.

Martyr Myron the Presbyter of Cyzicus

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr, Myron, 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

From childhood you longed for Christ, all-glorious one, / keeping His divine commandments and running to Him with all your being, all-honored Myron. / Now you zealously pray with the angels, / asking remission of sins / for those who celebrate your memory.
