Troparion to St. Jonah (Tone 4)
Thou wast a good pastor for the Russian people /
who had departed in exodus to live in a foreign land, /
guiding them in every way, /
but especially with the love of Christ, /
in all providing a model of love unfeigned. /
O father Jonah, holy hierarch of Christ, //
entreat Him for the salvation of our souls.
Kontakion to St. Jonah (Tone 3)
Taking care for their daily needs, /
Thou didst not forbid children to come to thee, /
O divinely blessed one, /
and didst found a home for them. /
And even after thy repose thou didst not forsake them, /
for in a dream thou didst heal a paralyzed boy. /
Wherefore we cry out unto thee: //
Rejoice, O all-glorious Jonah, thou worker of wonders!
