Apolytikion of Theoctistus the Righteous in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone

With the rivers of your tears, you have made the barren desert fertile. Through sighs of sorrow from deep within you, your labors have borne fruit a hundred-fold. By your miracles you have become a light, shining upon the world. O Theoctistus, our Holy Father, pray to Christ our God, to save our souls.

Kontakion of Theoctistus the Righteous in the Fourth Tone
