Commemorated on June 8
Troparion & Kontakion
Troparion — Tone 4
Truly enlisted with the King of Heaven, / you became an outstanding general for Him, passion-bearer Theodore; / you armed yourself wisely with the weapons of faith / and conquered hordes of demons, revealing yourself as a victorious athlete. / Therefore, in faith we always call you blessed.
Kontakion — Tone 2
(Podoben: “Seeking the highest…”)
With the word of God as a spear in your hand, / in courage of soul and armed with faith, / you vanquished the enemy, O Theodore, glory of martyrs; / with them you unceasingly pray to Christ God for us all.
