St. Vladimir The Great Prince And Equal-To-The-Apostles

Troparion tone 4

Sitting on the throne of God-protected Kiev,
thou wast like a merchant seeking goodly pearls, O Vladimir.
Thou didst search and Send to the Imperial City
to know the Orthodox Faith.
Thou didst find Christ the Pearl of great price,
Who chose thee like Paul and enlightened thy blindness at the Font.
Thy people celebrate thy repose:
wherefore pray for Russia and all peoples,
that the Orthodox may be granted peace and great mercy.


Kontakion tone 8

Like the Apostle Paul, O Vladimir,

thou didst abandon childish ways

and in manhood wast royally adorned with Baptism.

Now thou art joyfully standing

in the presence of Christ our Saviour:

pray that Orthodox Hierarchs and people,

and all creation, may be saved.

Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord!
