Synaxis of the Holy New Martyrs
and Confessors of Russia
January 24

 

Tone 4 Troparion

 

Today the Church of Russia forms a chorus in joy,
praising her new martyrs and confessors;
hierarchs and priests, royal passion-bearers,

                             right-believing princes and princesses,
venerable men and women, and all Orthodox Christians.
Having laid down their life for faith in Christ

                           during the days of godless persecution,
they preserved the truth by the shedding of blood.
By their protection, O long-suffering Lord,

                        preserve our land in Orthodoxy till the end of the age.


Tone 3 Kontakion

 

Today the new martyrs of Rus’ stand in white robes before the Lamb of God,
and with the angels they sing to God the hymn of victory:
“Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and praise, and honor,
and power, and strength be to our God
unto the ages of ages. Amen.”

Blessed Xenia of St. Petersburg
January 24

 

Troparion — Tone 5

 

Having lived as a stranger in the world,
you outwitted the deviser of evil
by your pretended foolishness, O Xenia.
You received the grace from God
to foresee and foretell things to come.
Now, as you have been translated from earth to heaven,
you are numbered with the choirs of the angels.

 

Kontakion — Tone 4

 

You gave your wealth to the poor, O Xenia,
and accepted poverty out of love for Christ;
having lived a life rivaling the angels, you were accounted worthy of glory on high.
