Venerable Paul the Simple of Egypt - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

In you, o venerable Father Paul, / the image of God shone forth, / for you carried your Cross and followed Christ. / By so doing you taught us to disregard the flesh for it passes away, / and to care instead for the soul since it is immortal, / wherefore your soul forever rejoices with the angels!
