St. James the Apostle, Son of Alphaeus
Commemorated October 9
Troparion of St. James, Tone 4
O holy Apostle James, thou didst receive the fiery grace of the Spirit and didst shine on the world like the morning star; thou didst dispel the pagan night of idols. Pray unceasingly for our souls.
Kontakion of St. James, Tone 4
James was a wonderful fisherman of the nations and companion of the Disciples and Apostles. He dispenses the wealth of his healings to the world and frees from distress those who honour him. With one voice we cry to him: Save us all by thy prayers, O Apostle.
