St. Moses the Black
Commemorated August 28
Troparion, Tone 1
You abandoned the Egypt of the passions, O Father, ascending the mount of the virtues with fervent faith, taking the Cross of Christ upon your shoulders; and being glorified in godly works, you proved to be a model for monastics, O summit of the fathers. Pray unceasingly with them that our souls may find mercy!
Kontakion, Tone 3
Your mind was filled with a holy inspiration from God, turning you from the lust and pleasures of the flesh, bringing you to the height of the city of God! O Holy Father Moses, intercede with Christ God that He may grant us great mercy!
