Icon of the Savior: "Not Made with Hands"

Commemorated August 16
Troparion — Tone 2
We venerate Your most pure image, O Good One, /
and ask forgiveness of our transgressions, O Christ God. /
Of Your own will You were pleased to ascend the Cross in the flesh / to deliver Your creatures from bondage to the Enemy. /
Therefore with thanksgiving we cry aloud to You: /
 “You have filled all with joy, O our Savior, /
 by coming to save the world.”

Kontakion — Tone 2
Uncircumscribed Word of the Father /
as we behold the victorious image of Your true incarnation, /
not made by hands, but divinely wrought /
in Your ineffable and divine dispensation towards us, /
we honor it with veneration!
