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.
