St. Jude the Apostle, Brother of the Lord
Commemorated June 19
Troparion, Tone 1
Divinely we praise you, O Jude, as a faithful witness, knowing you to be the brother of Christ. You trampled on delusion, and so preserved the faith. Today as we celebrate your holy memory, by your intercessions we receive remission of sins.
Kontakion, Tone 2
You were chosen as a disciple for your firmness of mind: an unshakable pillar of the Church of Christ, you proclaimed His word to the Gentiles, telling them to believe in one Godhead. You were glorified by Him, receiving the grace of healing, healing the ills of all who came to you, O most praised Apostle Jude!
