Today is the feast day of St. Nicholas of Myra for the Orthodox Church. As such, I’ve posted his Troparion as well as his Kontakion, as well as this link to Mystagogy that has an abundance of information on one of the best known saints of all time. St. Nicholas of Myra, please pray to God for us!
Troparion (Tone 4)
In truth you were revealed to your flock as a rule of faith,
an image of humility and a teacher of abstinence;
your humility exalted you;
your poverty enriched you.
Hierarch Father Nicholas,
entreat Christ our God
that our souls may be saved.
Kontakion (Tone 3)
You revealed yourself, O saint, in Myra as a priest,
For you fulfilled the Gospel of Christ
By giving up your soul for your people,
And saving the innocent from death.
Therefore you are blessed as one become wise in the grace of God.1
