Troparia and kontakia for March 5

Martyr Conon of Isauria

Troparion — Tone 5

Armed with the grace of the Spirit, / You crushed the power of ungodliness / And shone forth with miracles. / Dyed in the streams of your blood, O martyr Conon, / You glorify God, who through you grants us grace and great mercy!

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyrs Conan and Onesimus, O Lord, / Through their sufferings have received incorruptible crowns from You, our God. / For having Your strength, they laid low their adversaries, / And shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through their intercessions, save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 3

Having lived on earth in purity, like an angel, / you were counted worthy to converse with the bodiless hosts. / You brought your parents to the knowledge of Christ / and having confessed the one God in Trinity, / you suffered to the shedding of your blood! / Martyr Conon, ever entreat him for the sake of us all!

Martyr Onesimus of Isauria

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyrs Conan and Onesimus, O Lord, / Through their sufferings have received incorruptible crowns from You, our God. / For having Your strength, they laid low their adversaries, / And shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through their intercessions, save our souls!

You were nurtured in the Temple and in the Holy of Holies, / robed with faith and in wisdom and perpetual virginity. / The Archangel Gabriel brought you greetings from Heaven and cried: / “Hail, O full of grace, hail, Most Glorious Lady, / the Lord is with you.”

We have no other help, we have no other hope, but you, O Lady. / Help us, for in you we hope, / and of you we boast, for we are your servants. / Let us not be put to shame.
