troparia 14 December

Today (14 December on the Julian calendar), with the troparia provided by M Lopez-Ginisty of Acathistes et offices orthodoxes, we commemorate SS Venantius Fortunatus, Nicasius of Rheims and Fingar and Fiala, Irish martyrs in Cornwall.

Ton 4 Tropaire à saint Venance Fortunat, évêque de Poitiers, (Natalice en 609 A.D.)

Tu quittas l’Italie envahie de barbares,*
En Gaule tu devins évêque de Poitiers,*
Poète, tu chantas la gloire de la Croix,*
Et les louanges du hiérarque saint Martin.*
Illustre serviteur de l’Eglise du Christ,
Saint Venance Fortunat, prie Dieu pour nos âmes!

Tone 4 Troparion to Venantius Fortunatus, bishop of Poitiers (+609)
You left Italy, invaded by barbarians,
And in Gaul you became bishop of Poitiers.
Poet, you sang the glory of the Cross
And the praises of the holy hierarch Martin.
Illustrious servat of the Church of Christ,
Holy Venantius Fortunatus, pray to God for our souls!

Ton 3 Tropaire à saint Nicaise, évêque de Reims, Martyr, (Natalice au 5ème siècle)

Pasteur des brebis du Christ en ville de Reims,*
Tu éclairais par ta vie les vertus divines.*
Ayant reçu de Dieu le don de prophétie,*
Tu prédis que ton siège allait être pillé.*
En vérité, tu fus plus tard martyrisé.*
Saint Nicaise, prie pour le salut de nos âmes!

Tone 3 Troparion to St Nicasius, bishop of Rheims, martyr (+5th century)
Shepherd of the flock of Christ in the city of Rheims,
By your life you illuminated the divine virtues.
Having received from God the gift of prophecy,
You predicted that your see would be pillaged.
And in truth, you were later martyred.

Holy Nicasius, pray for the salvation of our souls!

Ton 6 Tropaire à saints Fingar et Fiala, martyrs, (Natalice en 555 A.D.)
Fils de l’Hibernie, tu fus chassé par ton père,*
Car tu reçus saint Patrick et te convertis.*
A la mort de ton géniteur, tu retournas*
Avec ta sœur Fiala au pays de tes pères,*
Et vous fûtes massacrés en haine du Christ.*
Saints Fingar et Fiala, priez Dieu pour nos âmes!

Troparion in Tone 6 to SS Fingar and Fiala, martyrs (+555)
O Fingar, son of Ireland, you were driven out by your father,
Because you received St Patrick and converted to Christ.
On the death of your parent, you returned
With your sister Fiala to the land of your fathers,
And you were both killed out of hatred for Christ.
Holy Fingar and Fiala, pray to God for our souls!

Holy saints of the Church, pray to God for us.
