Venerable Onuphrius the Great

Troparion — Tone 1

In the flesh you lived the life of the angels, / You were citizens of the desert and treasuries of grace, / O Onuphrius, adornment of Egypt, / And Peter the light of Athos. / Therefore we honor your struggles as we sing to you: / Glory to him who has strengthened you! / Glory to him who granted you a crown! / Glory to him who through you grants healing to all!

You appeared as a bright star to the hermits of the desert, / a light shining in the darkness of solitude, O holy Father Onuphrius, / therefore ceaselessly intercede for us all.

Kontakion — Tone 8

By your achievements in the wilderness you became like the Bodiless Powers, / Godly Onuphrius, and righteous Peter adornment of Athos. / The heavenly-minded pair who sing in one voice: “Alleluia”!

Having been enlightened by Divine grace, O venerable one, / and having bound your wise soul to the love of Christ, with uprightness of mind, you scorned corruptible and earthly goods. / You armed yourself courageously against noetic enemies with the Sign of the Cross, / extinguishing the coals of the passions through the ascetical struggles of fasting and prayer. / O Anna worthy of glory, / even after death you pour forth grace upon those who come to your relics. / Now, in the heavenly Bridal Chamber with the wise virgins, pray to Christ for us who honor your holy memory.
