Monastic Martyr and Confessor Stephen the New - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

Trained in asceticism on the mountain, / with the weapon of the Cross you destroyed the spiritual assaults of the hostile powers, all-blessed one; / Again you bravely prepared for combat / and slew Copronymus with the sword of faith; / for both struggles you have been crowned by God, monk-martyr Stephen of eternal memory.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Lovers of the feasts, from the heart with hymns let us praise in faith / godlike Stephen the lover of the Trinity, / for he honored the fair icon of the Master and of His Mother. / Now let us rejoice together and cry out to him with love: / “Rejoice, ever glorious Father.”
