Commemoration of the

318 Holy Fathers

of the First Ecumenical Council

May 24

Troparion — Tone 8

You are most glorious, O Christ our God!

You have established the Holy Fathers as lights on the earth!

Through them you have guided us to the true faith!

O greatly Compassionate One, glory to You!


Kontakion — Tone 8

The Apostles’ preaching and the Fathers’ doctrines have established one faith for the Church.

Adorned with the robe of truth, woven from heavenly theology,

It defines and glorifies the great mystery of Orthodoxy!

The Ascension of our Lord

May 21


Kontakion — Tone 4


O Christ God, You have ascended in Glory,

Granting joy to Your disciples by the promise of the Holy Spirit.

Through the blessing they were assured

That You are the Son of God,

The Redeemer of the world!

Kontakion — Tone 6

When You had fulfilled the dispensation for our sake,

and united earth to heaven:

You ascended in glory, O Christ our God,

not being parted from those who love You,

but remaining with them and crying:

“I am with you and no one will be against you!”
