Veneration of the Precious Chains of the Holy and All-Glorious Apostle Peter


Veneration of the Precious Chains of the Holy and All-Glorious Apostle Peter

Commemorated January 16

Troparion - Tone 4

You came to us without leaving Rome through the precious chains that you wore. First-enthroned of the apostles, we bow down to them in faith and pray: "Through your prayers to God grant us great mercy."

Kontakion - Tone 2

Christ the Rock radiantly glorifies the Rock of Faith, the first-enthroned of the disciples; He calls us to honor the miracles wrought through Peter's chains, so that He may grant us forgiveness of our sins.
