St. Theophylactus, Bishop of Nicomedia

Commemorated March 8

Troparion, Tone 4

Your soul aflame with love for Christ, You gathered a company of illustrious athletes, O glorious Agapius. With them you excelled in righteous contest, And together you were beheaded by the sword. Henceforth always pray for the forgiveness of our sins!

Kontakion, Tone 4

Out of love for Christ, The eight-fold choir of martyrs spurned all earthly things. As they were beheaded, They cried out together: O compassionate One, give joy to your servants!
