Translation of the Image “Not-Made-By-Hands” of our Lord Jesus Christ from Edessa to Constantinople, the Third “Feast of the Savior in August” - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 2

We venerate Your most pure image, O Good One, / and ask forgiveness of our transgressions, O Christ God. / Of Your own will You were pleased to ascend the Cross in the flesh / to deliver Your creatures from bondage to the Enemy. / Therefore with thanksgiving we cry aloud to You: / “You have filled all with joy, O our Savior, / by coming to save the world.”

Kontakion — Tone 2

Uncircumscribed Word of the Father / as we behold the victorious image of Your true incarnation, / not made by hands, but divinely wrought / in Your ineffable and divine dispensation towards us, / we honor it with veneration!
