Troparion (Tone 3) Holy Apostles Bartholomew and Titus, Entreat the merciful God, To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions. Kontakion (Tone 2) Titus, worthy of all praise and preacher of Christ's mysteries, You were Paul's companion, and with him taught us the doctrine of God. Therefore we cry out to you: Never cease to intercede for the sake of us all!
