Venerable Daniel the Stylite of Constantinople

Venerable Daniel the Stylite of Constantinople

Commemorated December 11

Troparion, Tone 1

You were a pillar of patient endurance, having having imitated the forefathers, O Venerable One: Job in suffering, and Joseph in temptations. You lived like the bodiless ones while yet in the flesh, O Daniel, our Father. Beseech Christ God that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion, Tone 8

You ascended your pillar like a brightly shining star, O blest One; you illumined the world with your venerable deeds dispersing the darkness of error. Therefore we pray you, Father Daniel, now illumine the hearts of your servants with the never-setting light of wisdom.
