Martyr Longinos the Centurion, who stood at the Cross of the Lord

Commemorated on October 16

Troparion — Tone 1

Longinus, you beheld the King of Glory / who was nailed to the Cross, yet shone on those in darkness. / You were enlightened by His rays and became a martyr / and save those who cry: / Glory to Him who gave you strength! / Glory to Him who granted you a crown! / Glory to Him who through you grants healing to all!

Kontakion — Tone 4

The Church rejoices in gladness / on the day of the commemoration of the ever-memorable athlete Longinus! / She cries out: “You are my strength and support, O Christ!”
