Uncovering of the Relics of St. Seraphim of Sarov – July 19

Troparion of St Seraphim    Tone 4

Thou didst love Christ from thy youth, O blessed one, and longing to work for Him alone thou didst struggle in the wilderness with constant prayer and labour. With penitent heart and great love for Christ thou wast favoured by the Mother of God. Wherefore we cry to thee; Save us by thy prayers, O Seraphim our righteous Father.

Kontakion of St Seraphim    Tone 2

Having left the beauty of the world and what is corrupt in it, O Saint, thou didst settle in Sarov Monastery. And having lived there an angelic life, thou wast for many the way to salvation. Wherefore Christ has glorified thee, O Father Seraphim, and has enriched thee with the gift of healing and miracles. And so we cry to thee: Rejoice, O Seraphim, our righteous Father.
