St. Spyridon the Wonderworker

Commemorated December 12

Troparion of St. Spyridon, Tone 1

Thou wast a champion of the First Council and a wonderworker, O Godbearing Father Spyridon. Thou didst speak to one dead in the grave, and change a serpent to gold; and while thou wast chanting the holy prayers the Angels were serving with thee. Glory to Him Who has glorified thee; glory to Him Who has crowned thee; glory to Him Who through thee works healings for all.

Kontakion of St. Spyridon, Tone 2

Thou didst lend wings to thy mind with the fire of the Spirit, wounded by love for Christ. Thy practical work was the practice of contemplation, O inspired Spyridon. Thou didst become a divine altar, imploring illumination for all.
