Troparia and kontakia for September 29

Venerable Cyriacus the Hermit of Palestine

Troparion — Tone 1

O dweller of the desert and angel in the body / You appeared to us a wonder-worker. / O God-bearing father Cyriacus, / Through fasting, vigil and prayer you received Heavenly gifts, / Healing the sick and the souls of those drawn to you by faith. / Glory to Him who gave you strength! / Glory to Him who granted you a crown! / Glory to Him who through you grants healing to all!

Kontakion — Tone 2

You armed yourself divinely with purity of soul, / And firmly wielding the lance of incessant prayer, / You pierced through the devil’s hosts. / Intercede without ceasing for us all, O Cyriacus, our father!

Saint Cyprian of Ustiug

Troparion — Tone 8

In you, O venerable Father Father Cyprian, the image of God shone forth, / for you carried your cross and followed Christ. / By so doing you taught us to disregard the flesh, for it passes away, / and to care instead for the soul since it is immortal. / Wherefore, your soul forever rejoices with the angels.

Kontakion — Tone 2

Podoben: You sought the heights
Having divinely armed yourself with the purity of your soul, / and firmly grasping unceasing prayer as a spear, you pierced the armies of demons. / Therefore, we beseech you, O our Father Cyprian, / always intercede for us who honor you.
