troparia July 21

Two troparia for saints of 21 July from Acathistes et offices orthodoxes

Ton 1 Tropaire à saint Victor, martyr à Marseille, (Natalice en 290 A.D.)

Officier, tu refusas de trahir le Christ,*

En acceptant de sacrifier aux dieux païens.*
Mené en prison, tu convertis les gardiens,*
Alexandre, Longin et Felicien, au Christ.*
Et comme blé du Pain de Vie, tu fus broyé.*

Saint Victor, prie le Seigneur de sauver nos âmes!

Tone 1 Troparion to St. Victor, martyr in Marseille (+ 290 AD)

Though an officer in the Roman army, you refused
To betray Christ by sacrificing to pagan gods.
Led to prison, you converted the guards

Alexander, Longinus and Felician to Christ.
And like wheat for the Bread of Life, you were crushed.
Saint Victor, pray the Lord to save our souls!

Ton 2 Tropaire à saint Arbogaste, évêque de Strasbourg, (Natalice au 7ème siècle)

D’abord solitaire dévot dans la forêt*
Appelée Forêt Sainte au pays de l’Alsace,*
Tu fus mandé à Strasbourg par le Roi Dagobert,*
Afin d’y remplacer le hiérarque Lothaire.*
Tu fus un évêque pieux soucieux de l’Eglise.*
Saint Arbogaste, prie le Christ de nous sauver!

Tone 2 Troparion to St. Arbogast, bishop of Strasbourg (+ 678)
Having left your native Ireland
To live as a hermit in the Holy Wood in Alsace,
You were summoned by King Dagobert to Strasbourg,
In order to replace the hierarch Lothar.
You were a pious bishop, concerned for the Church.
Saint Arbogast, pray to Christ to save us!
