Troparia and kontakia for June 10

Hieromartyr Timothy, Bishop of Prusa

Troparion — Tone 1

By sharing in the ways of the Apostles, / you became a successor to their throne. / Through the practice of virtue, / you found the way to divine contemplation, O inspired one of God; / by teaching the word of truth without error, / you defended the Faith, even to the shedding of your blood. / Hieromartyr Timothy entreat Christ God to save our souls.

(The Typikon does not prescribe a Kontakion.)

Saint John Maximovitch, Metropolitan of Tobolsk

Troparion — Tone 8

O teacher of piety, nourisher of orphans, consoler of mourners, / unmercenary physician of the sick, swift helper of suffering souls, / ardent intercessor for all with the Lord. / O hierarch Father John, pray to Christ God to save our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 2

You were shown to be an enlightener of those in the darkness of ignorance, / a comforter of widows and orphans, / a wonderful physician of the ailing, / a mentor of children and youths, a most radiant joy for parents. / O hierarch Father John, pray to Christ God to grant our country confirmation in faith; / to our armies, victory over our enemies; and great mercy to His people.
