Commemorated on January 16
Troparion & Kontakion
Troparion — Tone 4
You came to us without leaving Rome / through the precious chains that you wore. / First-enthroned of the apostles, / we bow down to them in faith and pray: / “Through your prayers to God grant us great mercy.”
Kontakion — Tone 2
Christ the Rock radiantly glorifies the Rock of Faith, / the first-enthroned of the disciples; / He calls us to honor the miracles wrought through Peter’s chains, / so that He may grant us forgiveness of our sins.
