Saints of 12 July

Today (12 July) the British calendar is quiet, so I’ve gone over to Acathistes et Offices Orthodoxes to collect today’s troparia:

Ton 1 Tropaire à saint Menou,évêque de Quimper,(Natalice au 7ème siècle)

Venu de la verte Hibernie en Bourbonnais,*
Tu as rencontré saint Corentin à Quimper,*
A sa mort, tu lui succédas comme hiérarque.*
Tu allas pérégriner aux lieux saints de Rome,*
Et tu naquis au Ciel sur la voie du retour.*
Saint Menou, prie Dieu pour le salut de nos âmes!

Troparion in Tone 1 to St Menulphus, Bishop of Quimper (+7th c)
Journeying from green Hibernia (Ireland, sic),
You met St Corentin at Quimper,
And at his death succeeded him as bishop.
You went on pilgrimage to the holy places of Rome,
And you were born into heaven (at Menoux in the Bourbonnais) on your return journey.
Saint Menulphus, pray to God for the salvation of our souls!

Ton 2 Tropaire à saint Balay, évêque de Lyon, (Natalice au 6ème siècle)
Tu étais seigneur de Rosmadeuc en Bretagne,*
Mais tu fis la rencontre de saint Guénolé,*
Chantre des richesses du monde à venir.*
Lors, tu quittas le monde pour Landévénec,*
Où tu es devenu moine pour le Seigneur.*
Saint Balay, prie-Le d’avoir pitié de nos âmes!
Troparion in Tone 2 to St Biabailus, bishop of Lyon (+6th c)
You were lord of Rosmadec in Brittany
But then you met St Winwaloe,
Proponent of the riches of the world to come.
You left the world for Landévennec
Where you became a monk for the Lord.
Saint Biabailus, pray to Him to have mercy on our souls!

Ton 3 Tropaire à saint Juventiole,évêque de Lyon,(natalice au 6ème siècle)
Moine à l’école monastique de Condat,*
Où tu étais un enseignant de grand renom,*
Saint Avit, l’évêque de Vienne te manda*
Afin de créer son école épiscopale,*
Et il te fit nommer évêque de Lyon.*
Saint Juventiole, prie Dieu pour notre salut!
 
Troparion in Tone 3 to St Viventiolus, bishop of Lyon (+6th c)
Monk at the monastery school of Condat Abbey,
Where you were a teacher of great renown,
To establish his eipscopal school
and named you bishop of Lyon.
Saint Viventiolus, pray to God for our salvation!
Holy Fathers of the ancient see of Lyon, pray to God for us
and especially for the people and the land of France.
