Ss. Boris and Gleb


Ss. Boris and Gleb

Commemorated July 24

Troparion, Tone 2

Righteous passion-bearers and true fulfillers of the Gospel of Christ, chaste Boris and guileless Gleb, you did not resist the attacks of your brother, the enemy, when he killed your bodies but could not touch your souls. Therefore, let the evil lover of power mourn while you rejoice with the angels standing before the Holy Trinity. Pray that those who honor your memory may be pleasing to God, and that all Orthodox Christians may be saved.

Kontakion, Tone 3

Today your most glorious memory shines forth, noble participants in the passion of Christ, holy Boris and Gleb, for you call us together to sing praises to Christ our God! Praying to Him before your sacred images, we receive the gift of healing by your prayers, for you are indeed divine healers.
