St. Athanasius the Great and St. Cyril of Alexandria

An icon of St. St. Athanasius the Great and St. Cyril of Alexandria.

The Icon

Feast Day - January 18th.

These two archbishops of Alexandria, Egypt, are shown together dressed in their episcopal robes, holding the Gospel and raising their right hands in blessing. They were wise defenders of the faith and upheld the teachings of the Church, protecting it from heresies.

Troparion in tone 3

You shone forth with works of Orthodoxy and quenched all heresy,
and became victorious trophy-bearers, hierarchs Athanasius and Cyril.
You enriched all things with piety and greatly adorned the Church,
and worthily found Christ God,
who grants His great mercy to all.

Kontakion in tone 4

Athanasius and Cyril, great hierarchs of true piety, and noble champions of the Church of Christ,
preserve all who sing: "O Compassionate Lord, save those who honor You."
