Feast Day - July 2nd

Troparion in tone 5

Thy care for thy flock in its sojourn
has prefigured the supplications which thou didst ever offer up for the whole world.
Thus do we believe, having come to know thy love,
O holy hierarch and wonder-worker John.
Wholly sanctified by God through the ministry of the all-pure Mysteries,
and thyself strengthened thereby,
thou didst hasten unto suffering, O most gladsome healer
hasten now also to the aid of us who honor thee with all our heart.

Kontakion in tone 4

Thy heart hath gone out unto all who entreat thee with love, /
O holy hierarch John, /
and remember the struggle of thy whole industrious life /
and thy painless and easy repose, //
O faithful servant of the all-pure Directress.
