Venerable Father Zosima, Bishop of Babylon - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

You appeared to your flock as a rule of faith, / an image of humility and a teacher of abstinence. / Because of your lowliness, heaven was opened to you; / because of your poverty, riches were granted to you. / O Holy Bishop Zosima, pray to Christ our God to save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 2

You taught and preserved the doctrines of Christ, / greatly increasing the number of your sheep, O holy Zosima. / Therefore you now live with the angels in enjoyment of eternal life, / fervently interceding with Christ for us all.
