Troparia and kontakia for May 29

Virginmartyr Theodosia the Nun of Constantinople

Troparion — Tone 4

Your lamb Theodosia, O Jesus, / Calls out to You in a loud voice: / I love You, O my bridegroom, / And in seeking You, I endure suffering. / In Baptism I was crucified so that I might reign in You, / And died so that I might live with You. / Accept me as a pure sacrifice, / For I have offered myself in love. / By her prayers save our souls, since You are merciful.

Kontakion — Tone 2

Through your striving, O venerable Theodosia, / You inherited a life of peace. / By shedding your blood, you vanquished the enemy of the Church of Christ. / As you rejoice now in His presence, ever pray to Him for us all!

Kontakion — Tone 4

You were betrothed to the King of Heaven / as a pure and trophy-bearing martyr. / Entreat Him to save our souls, praiseworthy Theodosia.
