Sunday of the Fathers - Sunday before the Nativity
December 21

Troparion — Tone 2


Great are the accomplishments of faith,

for the Three Holy Youths rejoiced in the flames as though at the waters of rest,

and the prophet Daniel appeared,

a shepherd to the lions as though they were sheep.

So by their prayers, O Christ God, save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 1

Rejoice, Bethlehem! Prepare yourself, O Ephratha!

The Lamb is on her way to give birth to the Chief Shepherd she carries in her womb.

The God-bearing forefathers will rejoice, beholding Him,

and with the shepherds, they will glorify the Virgin nursing Him
