Troparia and kontakia for June 5

Hieromartyr Dorotheus, Bishop of Tyre

Troparion — Tone 4

O Dorotheus, wise hierarch of Christ, / You received the light of wisdom as a gift from the Father of lights. / You increased the talents given to you / And in your old age contested beyond the bounds of nature. / And now, O Hieromartyr, you even intercede for our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 3

By preaching Orthodox doctrine, O Hieromartyr, / You offered yourself as a godly and holy gift. / First you excelled in asceticism / And then in the contest of martyrdom, / Attaining the victor’s prize from Christ our God!

Kontakion — Tone 5

You were resplendent, O blessed Dorotheus, / With virtues brighter than the sun and with your sufferings! / You shine forth and enlighten the land, / Dispelling the darkness of idolatry and base heresy. / Therefore, we celebrate your memory with splendor!
