Troparia and kontakia for July 23

Martyr Trophimus and 14 Others in Lycia

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr Trophimus and his companions, O Lord, / through their sufferings have received incorruptible crowns from You, our God. / For having Your strength, they laid low their adversaries, / and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through their intercessions, save our souls!

Icon of the Mother of God “the Joy of All who sorrow” (with coins) in St. Petersburg

Kontakion — Tone 6

We have no other help, we have no other hope, but you, O Lady. / Help us, for in you we hope, / and of you we boast, for we are your servants. / Let us not be put to shame.

Icon of the Mother of God of Pochaev

Troparion — Tone 5

Those who pray before your holy icon, O Lady, / Are vouchsafed healing and receive the knowledge of the true faith, / And they repel the attacks of the Hagarenes. / Therefore entreat remission of sins / For us who fall down before you. / Enlighten our hearts to thoughts of piety, / And raise a prayer to your Son to save our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 1

Your icon of Pochaev, O Theotokos, / Is become a source of healing and the confirmation of the Orthodox Faith. / Therefore deliver us who have recourse to you / From calamity and temptation. / Preserve your monastery unharmed. / Confirm Orthodoxy in the surrounding lands, / And forgive the sins of those who pray to you; / For you can do as you will.
