AKATHIST Hymn to the holy, glorious and all-laudable Apostle Simon the Zealot

Troparion (Tone 3)
O holy apostle Simon,
entreat the merciful God,
to grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.
Kontakion (Tone 2)
Let us all bless the eloquent Simon in praise,
who sowed the doctrines of wisdom in the hearts of the faithful;
for he now stands before the throne of glory
and rejoices with the angels,
as he prays for us all unceasingly.
For today we Commemorate not just one but Two Apostles at the same time, it is a pity for me that i cannot find one Akathist Hymn for this 2 so i did only each one Akathist Hymn in honour of this two Apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ.Simon was born in Cana of Galilee and was one of the Twelve Great Apostles. He was the bridegroom at the wedding feast where Christ changed the water into wine (John 2:1-11). Because of that miracle, St. Simon left his home, parents and bride to follow Christ. After Pentecost, he preached the Gospel in Mauritania in Africa.
