For Ezekiel
Troparion, Tone II
Today, we honor your prophet, Ezekiel, O Lord: * By his prayers, save our souls.

Kondakion, Tone II
As a prophet of the Lord, O wonderous Ezekiel, * you foretold the incarnation of Christ, the lamb and creator, * the very son of God who would reveal himself to the ages.

For the cross
Troparion, Tone I
O Lord, save your people and bless your inheritance. * Give victory to those who battle evil, * and with your cross protect us all.

Kondakion, Tone IV
Bestow your mercies on all who bear your name, * O you who freely let yourself be raised upon the cross. * In your power, gladden all who battle evil, * by gracing them with victory over every foe. * For as long as they have you as their ally, * they possess a weapon of peace, * unfailing trophy of victory.

Stavrotheotokion, Tone I
Surrounded by the grace of your sonís holy cross, * we hasten to sing your praises, O lady most pure. * For we enjoy your constant intercession * that preserves us from every evil.

Blessed is the kingdom of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit both now and forever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
