Meeting of Our Lord in the Temple

Meeting of Our Lord in the Temple

Commemorated February 2

Troparion of the Meeting, Tone 1

Rejoice, thou who art full of grace, Mother of God and Virgin, for from thee arose the Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God, to give light to those in darkness. Rejoice thou also, righteous Elder, who didst take in thine arms the Redeemer of our souls, Who also gives us the grace of resurrection.

Kontakion of the Meeting, Tone 1

Thou Who didst sanctify the Virgin's womb by Thy birth and bless Symeon's hands as was fitting hast now come to us and saved us, O Christ our God. But grant peace in the midst of wars to Thy community, and strengthen the Church which Thou hast loved, O only Lover of mankind.
