Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 3

The universe is well adorned and Ethiopia exults, as though graced with a crown; / for it is made radiant by you, and celebrates your memorial joyously; / for you spoke of God, teaching everyone to believe in Christ, / and have completed your course in a manner worthy of the Gospel. / Therefore, Ethiopia boldly stretches forth its hands to God. / Pray that He grant us great mercy.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Podoben: “As Creation’s Planter…”)
Philip, Your disciple and friend, the emulator of Your sufferings, / who spoke with God, proclaimed You as God to all the world. / By his supplications, and through the intercession of the Theotokos, / preserve Your Church, and every city, O most merciful One.
