HIDE TROPARION

Prophet Obadiah, Troparion, Tone II —
We celebrate the memory/ of Your prophet Obadiah, O Lord;/ through him we beseech You:// "Save our souls."

Kontakion, Tone I —
The great Obadiah, acquiring a mind luminous with divine splendor,/ speaks through the Holy Spirit, proclaiming things to come./ Today we honor him with faithful minds,// celebrating his holy memory which enlightens the hearts of men.

Holy Martyr Barlaam, Troparion, Tone IV —
In his suffering, O Lord,/ Thy martyr Barlaam received an imperishable crown from Thee our God;/ for, possessed of Thy might,/ he set at nought the tormentors and crushed the feeble audacity of the demons.// By his supplications save Thou our souls.

Kontakion to the Martyr, Tone IV "Thou hast appeared" —
Thou wast shown to be most amazing in the fortitude whereby thou didst endure immolation,/ and didst offer thyself in sacrifice unto Christ as incense of sweet savor.// Having received a crown of honor, O Barlaam, do thou ever pray for us, O athlete.

Tipikon Signs

– vigil for great feasts; a more festive service where all of the unfixed hymns are dedicated to the feast.
– "vigil" to a certain saint when All Night vigil is celebrated. The order of the service is similar to a “Polyeleos” (magnification) service, in that small vespers, great vespers and matins are combined (from this comes the vigil) and that there is the blessing of breads and the anointing with oil at the end of matins.
– "cross", "Polyeleos", "with the Polyeleos", "Polyeleos service", that is the type of service during which the "Polyeleos" (Praise/Magnification) is sung during matins (the majestic singing of the 134 and 135 psalms with verses); in addition, during this service there is a reading from the Gospel, the prokeimenon, gradual antiphons, the canon with 8 troparions, the praises and Great Doxology are sung, and during vespers "Blessed is the man" is sung (first "Glory" of the 1st kathisma), there is an entrance, Old Testament readings (parameia) and during lityia all of the verses may be sung to the saint.
– "doxology", "with doxology" during this service to the saint it is proper to sing the Great Doxology at the end of matins (in services of a lower rank, the doxology is read), also at this service are sung several Sunday Theotokions, sedalions after the kathisma (psaltery reading) to the saint, the katavasia during the canon, also at the end of matins are sung the praise verses, the Great Doxology, and the entire ending of matins follows the order of a feast.
– "six verse", "up to six"; all six stikhera of "Lord, I cry" are sung to the saint, there is a stikhera for "Glory" of the Apotischa for both vespers and matins; troparion to the saint, and the canon of matins is sung to the saint in six troparions.
, , no sign – "without a sign"; the most ordinary, daily service to a saint, to whom it is customary to sing only three stikhera at "Lord I cry" and the canon of matins in four troparions. There may not be a troparion to the saint.
