Martyrs Chrysanthus and Daria


Martyrs Chrysanthus and Daria

Commemorated March 19

Troparion, Tone 1

Let us honor the like-minded pair of martyrs Chrysanthus, scion of purity, and supremely modest Daria. United in holiness of faith, they shone forth as communicants of God the Word. They fought lawfully for Him and now save those who sing: "Glory to Him who has strengthened you! Glory to Him who has crowned you! Glory to Him who through you grants healing to all!"

Kontakion, Tone 1

In the sweet fragrance of holiness, O Chrysanthus, you drew Daria to saving knowledge. Together in contest you routed the serpent, the author of all evil, and were worthily taken up to the heavenly realms.
