Venerable Simeon of Emessa the Fool-For-Christ, and his fellow ascetic Venerable John - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 1

Having heard the voice of Your Apostle Paul: / we are fools for Christ’s sake! / Your servant Simeon, O Christ God, / lived the life of a fool here on earth for Your sake. / Therefore as we venerate his memory, / we entreat You, O Lord, to save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 2

Let us praise with fervent love, / this man who lived in the flesh as an angel, / adorning his soul with the most radiant virtues! / Simeon, the equal to the Apostles and the Bearer of God. / Together with him, let us honor his companion John, / for they both ever stand before God, interceding for us all!
