St. Longinus the Centurion
Commemorated October 16
Troparion of St. Longinus, Tone 1
O Longinus, thou didst behold the King of Glory nailed to the Cross yet shining on those in darkness. Thou wast enlightened by His rays and didst become a martyr and dost save those who cry: Glory to Him Who has strengthened thee; glory to Him Who has crowned thee; glory to Him Who through thee works healings for all.
Kontakion of St. Longinus, Tone 4
Today the Church rejoices in memory of the glorious Athlete Longinus, crying: Thou art my strength and my stronghold, O Christ.
