Holy Prophet Samuel
Holy Prophet Samuel - August 20
Troparion of the Prophet Samuel, Tone 4
Thou didst blossom as a scion of righteousness from a barren mother, O great Prophet Samuel. Thou didst reveal beforehand the blessings we should receive; from childhood thou didst serve the Lord in the priestly office. As a prophet thou anointedst kings; ever remember those who acclaim thee.
Kontakion of the Prophet Samuel, Tone 8
Thou wast a precious gift to God before thy conception; thou didst serve Him from infancy like an angel and wast granted to foretell future events, wherefore we cry to thee: Rejoice, O Samuel, thou Prophet of God and great high priest.
