Troparia and kontakia for May 10

Sunday of the Paralytic

Kontakion — Tone 3

By Your divine intercession, O Lord, / as You raised up the paralytic of old, / so raise up my soul, paralyzed by sins and thoughtless acts; / so that being saved I may sing to You: / “Glory to Your power, O compassionate Christ!”

Apostle Simon the Zealot

Troparion — Tone 3

Holy Apostle Simon / entreat the merciful God / to grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Kontakion — Tone 2

With praise let us all bless Simon, the herald of God, / who established the doctrines of wisdom securely in the souls of the pious. / Now he stands before the throne of glory, / and rejoicing with the angels, he unceasingly prays for us all.

Venerable Comgall of Bangor

Troparion — Tone 3

Having learned of the goodness of the Grace that comes from the Highest / And girded yourself from your youth in a clear conscience, / O Comgall, imitator of Christ, you were a pillar of patience / And a preacher of the Word of God, / You confirmed the teachings of the faith and subdued the imaginations of the superstitious, / By so doing you glady suffered for the truth being an example of suffering. / Since you possess boldness before Christ our God / Do not cease to pray for us, who in love revere your holy memory.
