Martyrs and Passion-Bearers Boris and Gleb 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.
The local Church is the living Body of Christ (1Cor 12:27) that serves to live, uphold, and preach the Faith as delivered by Christ, taught by the Apostles, and preserved in the Holy Scriptures and Tradition of the Holy Orthodox Church. We accomplish this mission by
• participation in liturgical worship, • partaking of the spiritual life and sacraments of the Church, • sharing in Christian fellowship as a eucharistic community, • providing for education of the Faith, • engaging in philanthropy, • being wise stewards of our time, talents, and properties and, • being Christ’s ambassadors (2Cor 5:20) to the world in manifesting His love, presence, and preaching.
