[[Troparion]] (Tone 8)
:Having seen the figure of the Cross in the heavens,
:And like Paul not having received his call from men, O Lord,
:Your apostle among rulers, the Emperor Constantine,
:Has been set by Your hand as ruler over the Imperial City
:That he preserved in peace for many years,
:Through the prayers of the Theotokos, O only lover of mankind.
[[Kontakion]] (Tone 3)
:Today Constantine and his mother Helen
:Reveal the precious Cross,
:The weapon of the faithful against their enemies.
:For our sakes, it has been shown to be a great sign, and fearsome in battle.
