Saint Nikephoros the Leper - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 1

All the angels were astonished by the struggles and and strict asceticism of the Venerable Nikephoros the Leper; / for like another Job, patiently enduring his pain, he glorified God, / Who has crowned him now with glory, distinguishing him through miracles. / Rejoice, instructor of monastics! / Rejoice, beacon of light! / Rejoice, for a delightful fragrance pours forth from your relics!

Kontakion — Tone 8

(Podoben: “O Victorious Leader...”)
The valiant athlete of endurance and fortitude, / the steadfast diamond of patience and long-suffering was tried by affliction and sickness, / and in this way he glorified the Most High God, let us extol Nikephoros the Leper, / saying unto him: Rejoice, O namesake of victory.
