Troparia and kontakia for January 10

Afterfeast of the Theophany of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

Troparion — Tone 1

When You, O Lord were baptized in the Jordan / the worship of the Trinity was made manifest / for the voice of the Father bore witness to You / and called You His beloved Son. / And the Spirit, in the form of a dove, / confirmed the truthfulness of His word. / O Christ, our God, You have revealed Yourself / and have enlightened the world, glory to You!

Kontakion — Tone 4

Today You have shown forth to the world, O Lord, / and the light of Your countenance has been marked on us. / Knowing You, we sing Your praises. / You have come and revealed Yourself, / O unapproachable Light.

Saint Gregory, Bishop of Nyssa

Troparion — Tone 4

O God of our Fathers, / always act with kindness towards us; / take not Your mercy from us, / but guide our lives in peace / through the prayers of the hierarchs Gregory and Dometian.

Troparion — Tone 4

In truth you were revealed to your flock as a rule of faith, / an image of humility and a teacher of abstinence; / your humility exalted you; / your poverty enriched you. / Hierarch Father Gregory, / entreat Christ our God / that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion — Tone 1

You kept watch with the eyes of your soul, holy bishop, / revealing yourself as a watchful pastor for the world. / With the staff of your wisdom and your fervent intercession, / you drove away all heretics like wolves. / You preserved your flock free from harm, most wise Gregory!

Saint Dometian, Bishop of Melitene

Troparion — Tone 4

O God of our Fathers, / always act with kindness towards us; / take not Your mercy from us, / but guide our lives in peace / through the prayers of the hierarchs Gregory and Dometian.

Venerable Paul, Abbot of Obnora, Vologda

Troparion — Tone 1

Inflamed with divine love from your youth, O venerable Paul, and despising all earthly attractions, you came to love Christ alone, / and for His sake, you settled in the inner wilderness / and lived with the wild animals, entirely for Christ. / Thus, the All-Seeing Eye, having beheld your labors, / enriched you with the gift of miracles, even after your repose. / Therefore, we cry out to you: / Pray unceasingly for us who always revere your honorable memory with hymns of praise.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Turning all of your spiritual longing toward God, steadfastly you followed His call with all your soul. / Having settled in the wilderness and, having lived there in an angelic way, you were a path to salvation for many. / Hence, Christ has glorified you, and enriched you with the gift of miracles. / Therefore, we cry out to you: Hail, Venerable Paul, dweller in the wilderness.
