The Scripture ReadingsActs 21:8-14
St. Theodore the Sanctified, Troparion, in Tone I —
A desert dweller, an angel in the flesh,/ and a wonderworker wast thou shown to be,/ O our God-bearing father Theodore,/ for having acquired heavenly gifts through fasting, vigilance, and prayer,/ thou dost heal the infirm,/ and the souls of those who have recourse to thee with faith./ Glory to Him Who hath given thee strength!/ Glory to Him Who hath crowned thee!// Glory to Him Who worketh healings for all through thee!
Kontakion, Tone II, ''Seeking the highest..." —
Thou didst flourish in the house of God like a palm-tree,/ and through excellent ascetic endeavor didst brine forth the fruit of the virtues for the Lord./ O venerable father;// wherefore, as one who standeth with the incorporeal hosts, thou art called blessed.
