Troparia and kontakia for September 27

Martyr Callistratus and 49 companions

Troparion — Tone 3

In contest you were strengthened by the Holy Spirit, Martyr Callistratus, / and were glorious in casting down the Enemy. / You offered a noble army of athletes / as sweet-smelling incense to Christ. / With them pray for us who praise you with hymns.

Kontakion — Tone 4

(Podoben: “Today You have shown forth...”)
Like stars you have shone upon the world / shedding the light of your contests and miracles upon all who cry to you: / “Rejoice, Martyr Callistratus and fellow company of martyrs.”

Venerable Sabbatius, Wonderworker of Solovki

Troparion — Tone 3

You abandoned the world and fought the good fight / by hardship, vigil and prayer. / Pray to Christ our God to save our souls, O holy Father Sabbatius!

Kontakion — Tone 2

Fleeing the turmoil of life / you dwelt on an island in the sea. / You took up your cross and followed Christ / toiling in vigils, fasting and hardships. / You became the adornment of the righteous / And we lovingly celebrate your memory. / Pray to Christ our God / to save our souls, O righteous Sabbatius!

Venerable Ignatius, Abbot in Asia Minor

Troparion — Tone 8

By a flood of tears you made the desert fertile, / and your longing for God brought forth fruits in abundance. / By the radiance of miracles you illumined the whole universe! / O our holy father Ignatius, pray to Christ our God to save our souls!
