For the Apostles and St Nicholas of Myra
Troparion of the Apostles (tone 3)
O holy apostles, intercede with the Merciful God that he may grant our souls the forgiveness of sins.
Troparion of Nicholas of Myra (tone 4)
O Father and Hierarch Nicholas, the holiness of your life has set you before your flock as a rule of faith, an example of meekness and a teacher of self-restraint. Wherefore you acquired greatness through humility and spiritual wealth through poverty. Pray to Christ God that he may save our souls.
