Veneration of the Precious Chains of the Holy and All-Glorious Apostle Peter

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.
