Today (28 September) in the calendar of early western saints we commemorate St Conval, disciple of St. Kentigern (630). St Tetta, abbess of Wimborne (8th C). St Lioba, abbess and missionary (782). St. Machan, monk. I am once again taking the quick(er) way by translating some of M Lopez-Ginisty’s troparia for several of today’s saints: St Exuperius of Arreau, bishop of Toulouse (+415 AD); St Chamon or Annemundus, archbishop of Lyon, martyred at Châlons-sur-Saône (+657); St Lioba, abbess of Bischofsheim in the diocese of Mainz (+779); and St Salonius of Geneva (+469 AD).
Troparion in Tone 3 to St Exuperius of Arreau, bishop of Toulouse (+415 AD)
You were elected to the see of Toulouse
You completed the church of St Saturnin
And you reestablished discipline within the Church.
You were deeply charitable to the poor
And were considered an exemplary saint.
Holy Exuperius, pray to God for our salvation!
Troparion in Tone 5 to St Chamon or Annemundus, archbishop of Lyon, martyred at Châlons-sur-Saône (+657)
Child of the nobility, raised in the Frankish court,
You consecrated your life to the service of Christ
As bishop, you pastured your flock in peace
And led it with wisdom toward God
And you ended your life in martyrdom at Châlons.
Holy Annemond, intercede for our salvation!
Troparion in Tone 7 to St Lioba, abbess of Bischofsheim in the diocese of Mainz (+779)
English by birth, you were related
To the holy hierarch Boniface of Mainz.
On his entreaty you went with several companions
into his monastery of Tauberbischofsheim
which you directed with love and wisdom.
Holy Leoba, pray to God that He have mercy on us!
Troparion in the 4th tone to St Salonius of Geneva (+469 AD)
At the age of ten years you went to Lérins
Working under the guidance of St. Honorat,
and having as masters St Hilary and St. Vincent.
As hierarch of the city of Geneva
You governed the Church with wisdom.
Saint Salonius, pray the Lord Christ for our souls!
