Troparia and kontakia for May 13

Midfeast of Pentecost

Troparion — Tone 8

In the middle of the Feast, O Savior, / Fill my thirsting soul with the waters of godliness, as You did cry to all: / If anyone thirst let him come to me and drink! / O Christ God, Fountain of our life, glory to You!

Kontakion — Tone 4

Christ God, the Creator and Master of all / Cried to all in the midst of the Feast of the law: / Come and draw the water of immortality! / We fall before You and faithfully cry: / Grant us Your bounties, for You are the Fountain of our life!

Virginmartyr Glyceria at Heraclea

Troparion — Tone 4

Your lamb Glyceria, calls out to You, O Jesus, in a loud voice: / “I love You, my Bridegroom, and in seeking You I endure suffering. / In baptism I was crucified so that I might reign in You, / and I died so that I might live with You. / Accept me as a pure sacrifice, / for I have offered myself in love.” / Through her prayers save our souls, since You are merciful.

Kontakion — Tone 3

Through your love for Mary, the Virgin Theotokos, / you preserved your virginity, O Glyceria. / You surrendered your heart to the Lord / and bravely fought until your death. / Therefore, Christ God has granted you a double crown.
