Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

By endurance you gained your reward, venerable Father; / you persevered in prayer unceasingly; / you loved the poor and provided for them in all things. / Blessed John the Merciful, intercede with Christ God that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion — Tone 2

You distributed your wealth to the poor / and in return obtained wealth from heaven, John the Merciful. / Therefore, we honor you and celebrate your memory, O namesake of mercy.
