Troparion

St. Theodosius the Coenobiarch, Troparion, Tone VIII —
With the streams of thy tears thou didst irrigate the barren desert,/ and with sighs from the depths of thy soul thou didst render thy labors fruitful an hun­dredfold./ Thou wast a beacon for the whole world, radiating miracles.// O our father Theodosius, entreat Christ God that our souls be saved.

Kontakion to the Venerable One, Tone VIII, "To thee the Champion Leader" —
Planted in the courts of thy Lord, thou didst flourish most beauteously in thy venerable virtues,/ and didst increase in number thy children in the desert,/ watering them with the torrents of thy tears, O godly chief shepherd of the flocks divine.// Wherefore, we cry out: Rejoice, O father Theodosius!
