St. Leo the Bishop of Catania in Sicily

Commemorated February 20

Troparion - Tone 1

You were shown forth as a resplendent priest, a teacher of godliness and a wonderworker, blessed hierarch Leo; by the light of heavenly virtue you were enriched with the power of the Spirit, and heal the souls and bodies of those who hasten to you. Glory to Christ who has glorified you! Glory to Him who has crowned you! Glory to Him who through you works healing for all!

Kontakion - Tone 2

With hymns of praise let us crown Leo, who was consecrated to the Lord from early childhood; he received grace while still a babe in swaddling clothes. He is a brightly shining star in the Church: its valiant defender and firm support!
