St. Aquilina the Martyr of Syria

Commemorated June 13

Troparion of St. Aquilina, Tone 4

O Lord Jesus, unto Thee Thy lamb doth cry with a great voice: O my Bridegroom, Thee I love; and seeking Thee, I now contest, and with Thy baptism am crucified and buried. I suffer for Thy sake, that I may reign with Thee; for Thy sake I die, that I may live in Thee: accept me offered out of longing to Thee as a spotless sacrifice. Lord, save our souls through her intercessions, since Thou art great in mercy.

Kontakion of St. Aquilina, Tone 3

With the sprinkling of thy blood was thou made pure, O fair virgin, and with crowns of martyrdom thou art crowned, O Aquilina; Christ thy Bridegroom, Who doth well forth life everlasting for this cause hath given thee to those in afflictions, for the healing of their illness and their salvation when they in faith flee to thee.
