"As a pilot calls on winds and a storm-tossed mariner looks homeward, so the times call on you to win your way to God. As God's athlete, be sober; the stake is immortality and eternal life."
[[Troparion]] (Tone 4)
:By sharing in the ways of the Apostles,
:you became a successor to their throne.
:Through the practice of virtue, you found the way to divine contemplation,
:O inspired one of God;
:by teaching the word of truth without error, you defended the Faith,
:even to the shedding of your blood.
:Hieromartyr Ignatius, entreat Christ God to save our souls.
[[Kontakion]] (Tone 3)
:The stirring celebration of your victorious fight
:Is an announcement of the One who is to be born of the Virgin.
:In your eagerness to possess Him forever,
:You hastened to be devoured by the wild beasts.
:Therefore, O glorious Ignatius, you were called the bearer of God!
