Venerable Dionysius, Abbot of Glushitsa, Vologda - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 1

Inflamed with divine love from your youth, O venerable Dionysius, and despising all earthly attractions, you came to love Christ alone, / and for His sake, you settled in the inner wilderness / and lived with the wild animals, entirely for Christ. / Thus, the All-Seeing Eye, having beheld your labors, / enriched you with the gift of miracles, even after your repose. / Therefore, we cry out to you: / Pray unceasingly for us who always revere your honorable memory with hymns of praise.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Turning all of your spiritual longing toward God, steadfastly you followed His call with all your soul. / Having settled in the wilderness and, having lived there in an angelic way, you were a path to salvation for many. / Hence, Christ has glorified you, and enriched you with the gift of miracles. / Therefore, we cry out to you: Hail, Venerable Dionysius, dweller in the wilderness.
