Martyrs Probus, Tarachus, and Andronicus, at Tarsus in Cilicia

Troparion — Tone 5

The heavenly powers were amazed at the triumph of the holy martyrs Probus, Tarachus, and Andronicus. / For having fought the good fight with their mortal bodies, / they conquered bodiless enemies by the power of the Cross. / Now they intercede with the Lord / that He may save our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 2

The brave warriors of Christ, the martyrs Probus, Tarachus, and Andronicus, / revealed to us the glory of the Trinity. / They refuted the godlessness of their torturers / by bravely contending for the Faith.

Saint Cosmas the Hymnographer, Bishop of Maiuma

Troparion — Tone 8

O Champion of Orthodoxy, teacher of purity and of true worship, / The enlightener of the universe and the adornment of the Hierarchs: / O all-wise Father Cosmas, Your teachings have gleamed with light upon all things. / Intercede before Christ our God to save our souls!

Troparion — Tone 4

Though in the flesh, you were zealous to emulate the choirs of heaven, / And while on earth you composed hymns to God in the highest, / Like a harp of holy wisdom, / With enlightened understanding you hymned God the Word. / O divinely inspired Cosmas, we praise you with hymns!

Kontakion — Tone 2

O God-inspired Cosmas, you adorned yourself with virtues, / Adorning the Church of Christ with the rich splendor of your hymns. / Intercede with the Lord that He may deliver us from the snares of our enemies! / We cry out to you: Rejoice, O holy and blessed Father!
