Feast of Saint Nicholas of Myra
Troparion (Tone 4): The truth of your deeds
has revealed you to your flock, * as a rule of faith, an image of meekness, and
a teacher of abstinence. * Therefore, you attained the heights of humility, *
and riches through poverty. * O Father and Hierarch Nicholas, * pray to Christ
God that our souls may be saved.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy
Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.
Kontakion (Tone 3): In Myra, You were shown to be a servant of the sacred
things, O Holy Nicholas, * for, fulfilling the Gospel of Christ, you, O
Venerable, laid down your life for your people, * and saved the innocent from
death. * Therefore, you were sanctified as a great initiate of the grace of God.
