The Scripture Readings1 Timothy 1:8-14
Holy Martyrs Platon and Romanus, Troparion, Tone IV —
In their sufferings, O Lord,/ Thy martyrs received imperishable crowns from Thee our God;/ for, possessed of Thy might,/ they set at nought the tormentors and crushed the feeble audacity of the demons.// By their supplications save Thou our souls.
Kontakion, Tone III "Today the Virgin" —
Thy holy memory doth gladden the whole world,/ summoning all the faithful to thine all-honorable temple,/ where, assembled now with joy, we chant in hymns amid splendor./ Wherefore, O Platon, we cry out to thee:// Deliver thy city from the invasion of the heathen, O holy one.
