New Calendar Arimathea

For those of you who follow the new calendar, happy feast day of Saint Joseph of Arimathea!

Troparion for Saint Joseph:

Noble Joseph took Thine immaculate Body down from the tree, wrapped it in a clean shroud and spices, and having embalmed It, laid It in a new sepulchre. But on the third day Thou didst rise, O Lord, granting the world great mercy.

Kontakion for Saint Joseph:

Joseph of Arimathea took Thee the Life of all, down from the Tree as one dead, and wrapped Thee in clean linen and spices. He yearned to embrace and kiss Thy pure Body with heart and lips yet he restrained himself with fear. He cried to Thee rejoicing: Glory to Thy condescension, O Lover of mankind.
