Venerable and God-bearing Father Anthony the Great - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

By emulating the ways of Elias the zealot, / and following the straight paths of the Baptist, / O Father Anthony, you made the desert a city, / and upheld the world by your prayers. / Therefore, entreat Christ God that our souls be saved.

Kontakion — Tone 2

(Podoben: “You sought the heights...”)
You rejected the tumults of this life and lived a life of stillness, / emulating the Baptist in every way, most righteous one. / Therefore, we honor you with him, Father Anthony, / the foundation of the Fathers.
