Troparia and kontakia for June 22

Hieromartyr Eusebius, Bishop of Samosata

Troparion — Tone 4

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 Eusebius, entreat Christ God to save our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 4

(Podoben: “Today You have shown forth...”)
You lived piously as a bishop, / and trod the path of martyrdom. / You extinguished idolatrous burnt offerings, / Hierarch Eusebius. / Since you have boldness before Christ God, entreat Him that our souls may be saved!

Saint Alban, Protomartyr of Britain

Troparion — Tone 4

In his struggle your holy martyr Alban, / gained the crown of life, O Christ our God. / For strengthened by you and in purity of heart, / he spoke boldly before the judges of this world, / offering up his head to you, the Judge of all!
