Troparia and kontakia for October 5

Martyr Charitina of Amisus

Troparion — Tone 4

Your lamb Charitina, / calls out to You, O Jesus, in a loud voice: / “I love You, my Bridegroom, / and in seeking You, I endure suffering. / In baptism I was crucified so that I might reign in You, / and I died so that I might live with You. / Accept me as a pure sacrifice, / for I have offered myself in love.” / Through her prayers save our souls, since You are merciful.

Kontakion — Tone 2

Having fortified your soul with faith and it strengthened by understanding / you openly put the enemy to shame, O Charitina; / you stood before Christ wearing a robe empurpled by your blood, All-Blessed One, / and now you rejoice with the angels, praying for us, O passion-bearer.

Synaxis of the Hierarchs of Moscow

Troparion — Tone 4

O Russian Hierarchs, / guardians of the Apostolic tradition, / firm pillars, guides of Orthodoxy, / Peter, Alexis, Jonah, and Philip, / pray to the Lord of all, / to grant peace to the world and great mercy to our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 3

You were holy as hierarchs; / you taught the people and you were well-pleasing to God. / He has glorified you with incorruption and miracles / as disciples of the grace of God.
