"Three Hands" Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos
Troparion of Ss Sergius and Herman Tone 4
Fulfillers of the Gospel of Christ,/ loving Him alone and despising earthly cares, you settled on an island./ There you fought against the invisible foe,/ by fasting, vigil and prayer subjecting your bodies to the spirit./ You received crowns and now stand before the Trinity:/ pray, O Fathers Sergius and Herman,/ that our souls may be saved.
Troparion of St. Austol Tone 7
Light of Cornwall and pillar of the Faith,/ holy Austol, disciple of Samson:/ thou wast a fellow-labourer with St. Mewan,/ in such companionship that thou didst die with him and share his grave./ Pray to Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.
Kontakion of Ss Sergius and Herman Tone 4
You left the world to follow in Christ's footsteps/ and reached Lake Neva and the Island of Valaam./ There you lived the angelic life/ and were translated to the heavenly Bridal chamber./ As you stand with the Angels remember the children whom you gathered,/ that we may joyfully cry to thee:/ Rejoice, blessed Fathers Sergius and Herman.
