Simon the Zealot

Troparion (Tone 3) O holy apostle Simon, entreat the merciful God, to grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions. Kontakion (Tone 2) Let us all bless the eloquent Simon in praise, who sowed the doctrines of wisdom in the hearts of the faithful; for he now stands before the throne of glory and rejoices with the angels, as he prays for us all unceasingly.
