Holy apostle of Christ,
Entreat the merciful God
To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.
Troparion - Tone 4
Together let us honor the threefold choir of Christ's Apostles,
Aristarchus, Pudens and the holy Trophimus.
Like rivers filled with the wisdom of God
They poured out the water of the Word for all the world.
Through their intercessions, O Christ our God, have mercy on us!
Kontakion - Tone 1
Apostles of Christ and laborers of the Savior,
You are the light of the world.
Intercede for us who praise your holy memory,
And pray that we may be saved.
