St. Dionysius the Areopagite
Commemorated October 3
Troparion - Tone 4
Having learned goodness and maintaining continence in all things, you were arrayed with a good conscience as befits a priest. From the chosen Vessel you drew ineffable mysteries; you kept the faith, and finished a course equal to His. Bishop martyr Dionysius, entreat Christ God that our souls may be saved.
Kontakion - Tone 8
As a disciple of the apostle caught up to the third heaven, you spiritually entered the gate of heaven, Dionysius. You were enriched with understanding of ineffable mysteries and enlightened those who sat in the darkness of ignorance. Therefore we cry to you: Rejoice, universal Father!
