25th Week after Pentecost. Tone seven.
The Scripture ReadingsGalatians 1:3-10
Venerable Father Ioannicius the Great, Troparion, Tone VIII —
With the streams of thy tears thou didst irrigate the barren desert,/ and with sighs from the depths of thy soul thou didst render thy labors fruitful an hundredfold./ Thou wast a beacon for the whole world, radiating miracles.// O our father Ioannicius, entreat Christ God that our souls be saved.
Hieromartyr Nicander, Bishop of Myra & Hermas the Priest, Troparion, Tone IV —
In his suffering, O Lord,/ Thy martyr Nicander received an imperishable crown from Thee our God;/ for, possessed of Thy might,/ he set at nought the tormentors and crushed the feeble audacity of the demons.// By his supplications save Thou our souls.
Kontakion of the venerable one, Tone VIII "To thee, the Champion Leader" —
Thou wast made manifest as a most radiant star,/ shining forth in the world and bringing light to those in the gloom of the passions./ And thou hast been shown to be a most mighty physician./ But as thou hast received the grace of healing,/ grant healing unto those who ask it of thee, that we may chant:// Rejoice, O father Ioannicius!
