Troparia and kontakia for September 28

Venerable Chariton the Confessor, Abbot of Palestine

Troparion — Tone 8

By a flood of tears you made the desert fertile, / and your longing for God brought forth fruits in abundance. / By the radiance of miracles you illumined the whole universe! / Our Father Chariton, pray to Christ God to save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 2

You delighted in the monastic life, divinely-wise one / and conquered the bodily passions; / you increased in faith, blossoming as the tree of life in the midst of Paradise, / most blessed and holy Chariton!

Prophet Baruch

Troparion — Tone 8

You were worthy of the light of prophecy / Becoming a companion to Jeremiah. / You foretold the self-emptying of God the Word / Which he wrought for the salvation of the world. / Now all heirs of his kingdom honor you, O holy Prophet Baruch!
