St. Bessarion the Wonderworker of Egypt

Commemorated June 6

Troparion of St. Bessarion, Tone 4

O God of our Fathers, always act with kindness towards us; take not Your mercy from us, but guide our lives in peace through the prayers of the venerable Bessarion and Hilarion the New.

Kontakion of St. Bessarion, Tone 2

You imitated the powers on high, venerable Bessarion, living by example the life of those who take flight. Led by steadfast desire to the heavenly good things of Christ the King, you put passing things from your mind and attained to Him. Entreat Him without ceasing for the sake of us all!
