Troparia and kontakia for February 4

Afterfeast of the Meeting of our Lord in the Temple

Troparion — Tone 1

Rejoice, O Virgin Theotokos, full of grace! / From you shone the Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God. / Enlightening those who sat in darkness! / Rejoice, and be glad, O righteous elder; / You accepted in your arms the Redeemer of our souls, / Who grants us the Resurrection.

Kontakion — Tone 1

By Your nativity, You did sanctify the Virgin’s womb, / And did bless Simeon’s hands, O Christ God. / Now You have come and saved us through love. / Grant peace to all Orthodox Christians, O only Lover of man!

Venerable Isidore of Pelusium

Troparion — Tone 4

O God of our Fathers, / Take not away Your mercy from us / But ever act towards us according to Your kindness, / And by the prayers of Your Saints / Guide our lives in peace.

Troparion — Tone 8

The image of God was truly preserved in you, O Father, / for you took up the Cross and followed Christ. / By so doing you taught us to disregard the flesh for it passes away / but to care instead for the soul, since it is immortal. / Therefore your spirit, venerable Isidore, rejoices with the angels.

Kontakion — Tone 4

Finding you to be another morning star, O glorious One, / the Church is illumined by the brilliance of your words. / She cries out to you: “Rejoice, all-blessed and divinely-wise Isidore.”

Martyr Jadorus

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr Jadorus, O Lord, / through his suffering has received an incorruptible crown from You, our God. / For having Your strength, he laid low his adversaries, / and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through his intercessions, save our souls!
