St. Theodosius the Cenobite

An icon of St. Theodosius the Cenobite.

The Icon

Feast Day - January 11th

St. Theodosios is portrayed in his monastic grab holding a partially unrolled scroll. The scroll is the Cenobitic monastic rule which he developed. Cenobitic means monasticism in a community rather than a hermitage.

Troparion in tone 8

By a flood of tears you made the desert fertile,
and your longing for God brought forth fruits in abundance.
By the radiance of miracles you illumined the whole universe!
Our Father Theodosius, pray to Christ God to save our souls!

Kontakion in tone 8

Planted in the courts of your Lord, you blossomed beautifully with virtue,
and increased your children in the desert, showering them with streams of
your tears, O chief shepherd of the divine flock of God.
Therefore, we cry to you: "Rejoice, Father Theodosius."
