Tuesday ~ Dedicated to the Forerunner, John the Baptist

Troparion (Tone 2)

The memory of the just is mentioned with praise. As for you, O Forerunner, the Lord’s witness is enough: indeed, you were greater than the prophets since you were found worthy to baptize in the waters the One they could but announce. You have fought for the sake of truth and proclaims to those in Hades that God who appeared in the Flesh has taken away the sins of the world and bestowed his great mercy upon us.

Theotokion (Tone 2)

O Mother of God and Virgin for ever, through you, we were made to share in the divine nature. You gave birth for us to the incarnate God: wherefore we all exalt you with great devotion.

Kontakion (Tone 2)

O prophet of God and forerunner of grace, we have found buried in the earth as a rose of great holiness your head from which we always obtain our healing. As of old, you are now preaching repentance to the world.
