Troparion of the Venerable Mother Theodora of Alexandria in Tone VIII —
In thee, O mother, that which was created according to the image of God was manifestly saved./ For accepting thy cross thou didst follow after Christ,/ and praying thou didst learn to disdain the flesh,/ for thou didst transcend it to take care of thine immortal soul.// Wherefore, with the angels doth thy soul rejoice, O venerable Mother Theodora.

Troparion of the Holy Hieromartyr Autonomus in Tone IV —
As thou didst share in the ways of the apostles/ and didst occupy their throne,/ thou didst find thine activity to be a passage to divine vision,/ O divinely inspired one./ Wherefore, ordering the word of truth,/ thou didst suffer for the Faith even to the shedding of thy blood.// O hieromartyr Autonomus, entreat Christ God, that our souls be saved

Kontakion of the venerable Mother Theodora, Tone II "Seeking the highest" —
Laying waste to thy body through fasting,/ thou didst entreat the Creator with vigils of prayer because of thy sin,/ that, receiving full forgiveness,/ thou might also receive remission,// having come to know the path of repentance.

Kontakion of the hieromartyr Autonomus, Tone II "Seeking the highest" —
Thou didst blamelessly perform the divine mysteries, O all-wise and divinely blessed one,/ and didst become a pleasing sacrifice;/ for thou didst drain the cup of Christ, O all-glorious one,/ beacon of the whole world,// who prayest unceas­ingly in behalf of us all.

Venerable father Silouan of Mount Athos, Troparion in Tone IV —
By thy prayers thou didst receive Christ as thy Master on the path of humility;/ and in thy heart the Holy Spirit witnessed unto thy salvation./ For this cause all people called to live in hope/ are now rejoicing and celebrating thy memory.// O holy Father Silouan, pray to Christ to save our souls.

Kontakion of the Venerable one in Tone VIII —
During thy life on earth thou didst serve Christ, following His path/ and now in Heaven thou dost contemplate Him Whom thou hast loved;/ dwelling with Him as He promised to His elect,// O holy father Silouan, instruct us in the way that thou hast gone.
