St. Theophylactus

St. Theophylactus

Commemorated March 8

Troparion, Tone 3

As an unsleeping guardian of the Church, you were a refuter of godlessness. By defending and honoring the icon of Christ, you were made to endure exile and affliction. Righteous Father Theophylactus, entreat Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.

Kontakion, Tone 2

Podoben: "Seeking the highest..." You were revealed as a beacon shining to the ends of the earth, holy hierarch Theophylactus. You preached the Word, one in essence with the Father and the Spirit, enlightening the council of God-bearing fathers. You were revealed to be a favorite of the Trinity; standing before Him unceasingly pray for us all.
