Venerable Barlaam of Serpukhov - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 3

You were taught to please God by the hierarch Alexis. / You adorned your soul with virtues, therefore you were revealed as the one chosen by the Mother of God, / and founded a monastery dedicated to the Entry of the Most Holy Theotokos into the Temple for the salvation of many human souls. / O venerable Father Barlaam, splendid instructor of monastics and fervent intercessor with God, / pray for the salvation of our souls.
