St Patrick Enlightener of Ireland

Kontakion — Tone 4

From slavery you escaped to freedom in Christ’s service: 

He sent you to deliver Ireland from the devil’s bondage.

You planted the Word of the Gospel in pagan hearts.

In your journeys and hardships you rivaled the Apostle Paul!

Having received the reward for your labors in heaven,

Never cease to pray for the flock you have gathered on earth,

Holy bishop Patrick!

Holy St. Patrick pray to God for us!
