Martyr Nikon and the

199 Disciples with him in Sicily
March 23


Troparion — Tone 4


By your ascetic way of life
yuou conquered the crafty one, Holy Father Nikon.
By virtue of your holy life you became a rule and model to you disciples,
and with them you struggled for the Faith in the West.
You have all attained gloty in heaven.


Kontakion — Tone 8


Of like discipline withthe Ascetics and rivaling the holy Athleted in zeal,
you were offered to the Lord through martyrdom, steadfast and righteous Martyrs.
As your sure guide you had the glorioue Nikon;
fighting together with him you sang: Alleluia.

2nd Sunday of Great Lent:
St Gregory Palamas
March 24


Troparion — Tone 8


O light of Orthodoxy, teacher of the Church, its confirmation,
O ideal of monks and invincible champion of theologians,
O wonder-working Gregory, glory of Thessalonica and preacher of grace,
always intercede before the Lord that our souls may be saved.


Kontakion — Tone 8


Holy and divine instrument of wisdom,
joyful trumpet of theology,
together we sing your praises, O God-inspired Gregory.
Since you now stand before the Original Mind, guide our minds to Him, O Father,
so that we may sing to you: “Rejoice, preacher of grace.”
