The Scripture ReadingsRomans 16:17-24
Synaxis of the Holy Archangel Gabriel, Troparion, Tone IV —
Supreme commander of the armies of Heaven,/ we, the unworthy, do ever entreat thee,/ that by thy prayers thou ever surround us with the protection of the wings of thine immaterial glory,/ preserving us that earnestly fall down before thee and cry aloud:// Deliver us from misfortunes, in that thou art the leader of the hosts on high.
St. Stephen the Sabbaite —
No Troparion or Kontakion given in the Menaion.
Kontakion of the Archangel, Tone II —
O wise Gabriel, thou leader of the angels,/ minister of the glory of God and divine champion of the world,/ who beholdest the glory of God in the heavens/ and bestowest grace on earth:/ save and preserve those who cry out to thee:// Be thou thyself our helper, and no one will prevail against us!
And this Kontakion, Tone II: "The steadfast.." —
O chief commander of God,/ minister of glory divine,/ captain of the angels and instructor of men:/ beg thou great mercy and that which is profitable for us,// for thou art the supreme commander of the bodiless hosts.
