Venerable Nilus of Stolbensk Lake - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

You appeared as a bright light on the island of Lake Seliger. / From your youth you took Christ’s cross on your shoulder. / You followed him zealously, O Father Nilus, / And by your purity you approached the divine likeness. / You were enriched with the gift of miracles; / And now we run to your relics compunctionately crying: / Entreat Christ our God that he may save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 8

Leaving your fatherland you made your wilderness dwelling on the island of Lake Seliger. / Living in hardship and amazing men by your virtues, / You received Christ’s gift of working wonders. / Remember us who honor your holy memory, / That we may cry to you: Rejoice, O Father Nilus!
