Great-Martyr Theodore Stratelates the General

Great-Martyr Theodore Stratelates the General

Commemorated February 8

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

With the word of God as a spear in your hand, in courage of soul and armed with faith, you vanquished the enemy, Theodore, glory of martyrs, with whom you unceasingly pray to Christ God for us all.
