Martyrs Carpus, Papylus, Agathadorus, and Agathonica, at Pergamum

Commemorated on October 13

Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr Carpus and his companions, O Lord, / through their sufferings have received incorruptible crowns from You, our God. / For having Your strength, they laid low their adversaries, / and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through their intercessions, save our souls

Kontakion — Tone 4

(Podoben: “As You were voluntarily raised…”)
The Master has granted your relics to those on earth / as a precious treasure and a fountain flowing with streams of healings; / they cleanse diseases of every kind / and give grace to souls in a never-ending stream; / and so with one accord we celebrate your feast with love, Carpus and Papylus.
