Troparia and kontakia for March 28

4th Saturday of Great Lent: Memorial Saturday

Troparion — Tone 8

Only Creator, with wisdom profound, You mercifully order all things, / and give that which is needed to all men: / Give rest, O Lord, to the souls of Your servants who have fallen asleep, / for they have placed their trust in You, our Maker and Fashioner, and our God.

Kontakion — Tone 8

With the saints give rest, O Christ, to the souls of Your servants, / where there is neither sickness nor sorrow, and no more sighing, / but life everlasting.

Venerable Hilarion the New, Abbot of Pelekete

Troparion — Tone 5

Adorned with gladness of soul / As a pure vessel of the wisdom of Christ, / You were a reflection of the life in God. / Therefore you are resplendent with the light of virtues, / O Father Hilarion, / And you guide us unerringly to the salvation of our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 4

Righteous Hilarion, like a fruitful olive tree that has blossomed, / with your oil you mystically make radiant those who sing to you: / “Rejoice, unwavering rule of the righteous.”
