Troparia and kontakia for March 3

Sunday of Meatfare of the Last Judgment

Kontakion — Tone 1

When You, O God, shall come to earth with glory, / all things shall tremble / and the river of fire shall flow before Your judgment seat; / the books shall be opened and the hidden things disclosed! / Then deliver me from the unquenchable fire, / and make me worthy to stand at Your right hand, Most Righteous Judge!

Martyrs Eutropius, Cleonicus, and Basiliscus of Amasea

Troparion — Tone 4

Let us praise Eutropius, Basiliscus and divine Cleonicus, / The three holy athletes of Christ. / They surpassed human endurance in their contests / And professed the supremacy of the Trinity. / Now they ceaselessly intercede that we all may be saved!

Kontakion — Tone 4

Eutropius, Basiliscus and Cleonicus, / Bound together in unity of faith, / By their noble contest speedily destroyed the enemies’ ranks!
