July 5 troparia

Several troparia for 5 July, translated from M Lopez-Ginisty’s French originals at Acathistes et Offices Orthodoxes:
Ton 1 Tropaire à sainte Triphine, moniale, (Natalice au 6ème siècle)

Fille du Comte Conmore en Grande Bretagne,*
Et mère dévote du saint moine Trémeur,*
Qui reçut du Seigneur la palme du martyre,*
A la dormition de ton fils, tu es entrée*
Dans un couvent sacré en terre de Bretagne.*
Sainte Triphine, prie Dieu de sauver nos âmes!

Troparion to St Tryphine, nun (6th c)Unwilling wife of Conomor, a count in Brittany,
and devout mother of the holy monk Tremeur,
who received from the Lord the palm of martyrdom,
Upon the falling asleep of your son,
you entered a holy convent in Brittany.
St Tryphine, pray to God to save our souls! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Tryphine

(I have changed the wording here a bit, since versions of the legend differ.)

Ton 2 Tropaire à saint Numérien, évêque de Trêves, (Natalice en 665 A.D.)

Fils d’un riche sénateur, tu devins l’enfant*
De saint Benoît, père des moines d’Occident,*
Dans le pieux monastère de Remiremont.*
Puis tu allas à Luxeuil avant de partir*
Dans la ville de Trêves dont tu fus l’évêque.*
Saint Numérien, prie le Seigneur de nous sauver!

Troparion to St Numerian, Bishop of Treves (+665)

Son of a wealthy senator, you became the spiritual child
of St Benedict, father of western monks,
in the pious monastery of Remiremont.
Then you went to Luxeuil before departing
for the city of Treves, of which you were made bishop.
St Numerian, pray to the Lord to save us!

Ton 3 Tropaire aux saints époux Fragan et Gwen, (natalice au 5ème siècle)

Mari et femme venus du Pays de Galles,*
Qui trouvèrent refuge en terre de Bretagne,*
Vous avez donné l’Evangile à l’Armorique,*
Et à l’Eglise vos enfants saint Guetenoc,*
Saint Jacut et votre fille sainte Clervi.*
Saints Fragan et Gwen, avec eux priez pour nous!

Troparion to the holy husband and wife Fragan and Gwen Teirbron (5th c)
Husband and wife from Wales
Who found refuge in Brittany,
You gave the Gospel message to Armorica
And to the Church, your sons, St Gwethenoc
and St Jakob, and your daughter St Chreirbia.
Holy Fragan and Gwen, pray with them for us!

Another troparion to Fragan and Gwen is available at antiochian.org
