St. Porphyrius the Bishop of Gaza

Commemorated February 26

Troparion, Tone 4

Adorned with the royal purple of your virtues, you were glorious as a hierarch and shone forth resplendently, wise Porphyrius. You were excellent in word and deed and you strengthen all with the grace of godliness. As you ever serve Christ, do not cease to pray for the world.

Kontakion, Tone 2

You were adorned by your holy way of life and were resplendent in the robe of the priesthood, all-blessed, divinely-wise Porphyrius. You are famous for your powers of healing and you unceasingly pray for us all.
