Our venerable father, Auxentius.

For Auxentius
Troparion, Tone I
Like an angel in the flesh you lived in the desert, O godbearing father, Auxentius, * and there you performed great wonders. * Through fasting, watchfulness, and prayer, you obtained heavenly gifts, * and with these you heal the souls of the needy who approach you in faith. * Glory to him who gave you this power. * Glory to him who crowned you. * Glory to him * who heals us all through you.

Kondakion, Tone II
Your delight in monastic discipline and self-control enabled you to master your passions, * and, growing in faith and love, * you blossomed like the tree of life in paradise, O holy father, Auxentius, * in all things revealing to us the wisdom of God.

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.
