Saint Theophylactus, Bishop of Nicomedia - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 3

As an unsleeping guardian of the Church, / you were a refuter of godlessness. / By defending and honoring the icon of Christ, / you were made to endure exile and affliction. / Righteous Father Theophylactus, entreat Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.

Kontakion — Tone 2

(Podoben: “Seeking the highest...”)
You were revealed as a beacon shining to the ends of the earth, / holy hierarch Theophylactus. / You preached the Word, one in essence with the Father and the Spirit, / enlightening the council of God-bearing fathers. / You were revealed to be a favorite of the Trinity; / standing before Him unceasingly pray for us all.
