Venerable Euthymios the Great

Commemorated on January 20

Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

Rejoice, O barren wilderness! / And be glad, sterile desert, that has never known the travail of birth! / The man of desires has multiplied your sons; / he has planted them in faith and piety. / He has watered them with the Holy Spirit: / They grow in self-denial and perfect virtue. / Through His intercessions, O Christ God, preserve Your people in peace!

Kontakion — Tone 8

The wilderness rejoiced at your birth, holy father Euthymius. / In your memory, it brings a harvest of joy through your many miracles. / Pour these wonders on our souls as well and cleanse us from our sins, / that we may sing: Alleluia!
