Venerable Theodosius the Great, the Cenobiarch

Venerable Theodosius the Great, the Cenobiarch

Commemorated January 11

Troparion, Tone 8

By a flood of tears you made the desert fertile, and your longing for God brought forth fruits in abundance. By the radiance of miracles you illumined the whole universe! Our Father Theodosius, pray to Christ God to save our souls!

Kontakion, Tone 8

Planted in the courts of your Lord, you blossomed beautifully with virtue, and increased your children in the desert, showering them with streams of your tears, O chief shepherd of the divine flock of God. Therefore, we cry to you: "Rejoice, Father Theodosius."
