Commemorated April 19

Troparion of St. Paphnutios, Tone 4

As a priest thou didst offer the Holy Sacrifice, and as a Martyr thou was thyself a burnt offering. O Hieromartyr Paphnutios, God's steadfast Athlete and Treasury of grace, bestow grace on us who praise thee.

Kontakion of St. Paphnutios, Tone 2

Thou didst redden thy priestly vesture in the streams of thy blood and run joyfully to the heavenly tabernacle, O blessed Paphnutios, and cry out to the Saviour: Thou art the Fountain of Life, pouring compassion on us all.
