Nativity of the Holy Glorious Prophet,
Forerunner and Baptist, John
June 24


Troparion — Tone 4


Prophet and Forerunner of the coming of Christ,
although we cannot praise you worthily,
we honor you in love at your nativity,
for by it you ended your father’s silence and your mother’s barrenness,
proclaiming to the world the incarnation of the Son of God!


Kontakion — Tone 3


Today the formerly barren woman gives birth to Christ’s Forerunner,
who is the fulfillment of every prophecy;
for in the Jordan,
when he laid his hand on the One foretold by the prophets,
he was revealed as Prophet, Herald, and Forerunner of God the Word.

•    providing for education of the Faith,
•    engaging in philanthropy,

•    being Christ’s ambassadors (2Cor 5:20) to the world in manifesting His love, presence, and preaching.
