St. Euthymius the Great

Commemorated January 20

Troparion of St. Euthymius, Tone 4

Rejoice, O desert that has not given birth, be glad, thou who hast not travailed. For a man of desires has multiplied thy children of the Spirit; he has planted them in piety and reared them on continence to the perfection of virtues. By his prayers, O Christ our God, save our souls.

Kontakion of St. Euthymius, Tone 8

In thine august birth creation found joy, and in thy divine memory it receives the gladness of thy miracles. Grant these richly to our souls, O Euthymius, and cleanse the stains of our sins that we may sing:  Alleluia.
