St. Paul of Thebes
Commemorated January 15
Troparion, Tone 8
With the rivers of thy tears, thou hast made the barren desert fertile. Through sighs of sorrow from deep within thee, thy labors have borne fruit a hundred-fold. By thy miracles thou hast become a light, shining upon the world. O Paul, our Holy Father, pray to Christ our God, to save our souls.
Kontakion, Tone 4
O ye faithful, let us all laud the divine Paul, the bright luminary that shone at the virtues' lofty height; and let us joyously cry aloud: O Christ, Thou art the rejoicing of all the Saints.
