Thursday – Dedicated to the Apostles Peter and Paul and to Nicholas of Myra

Troparion of the Apostles (Tone 3)

O Holy Apostles, intercede with the all-merciful God that He may grant to our souls the forgiveness of sins.

Toparion of Nicholas of Myra (Tone 4)

O Father and Bishop Nicholas, the holiness of your life was set before your flock as a rule of faith, an example of meekness and a teaching of temperance; wherefore you acquired greatness through humility and spiritual wealth through poverty. Pray to Christ God that He may save our souls.

Theotokion (Tone 3)

O Virgin pure, Mother of God, we acknowledge that the Word of the Father, Christ our God, was incarnate of you, the only all-blessed one. Wherefore we sing to you a constant hymn of praise, and we exalt you.

Kontakion of the Apostles (Tone 8)

O Lord, you have taken up to their eternal rest and to the enjoyment of your good things the two infallible preachers of divine truths and leaders of the apostles, for You have accepted their struggles and their death as being better than any holocaust, O You who alone know the secrets of hearts!

Kontakion of Nicholas of Myra (Tone 3)

In Myra, you proved yourself to be a priest, a servant of divine things, O Saint, for you fulfilled the gospel of Christ, O Holy One: you gave up your life for your people and saved the innocent from death. You have been sanctified, for you were a great guide towards the things of God.
