Troparion St. Tikhon from the Menaion
Let us praise Tikhon, the Patriarch of All Russia chosen by the will of God, the lover of the traditions of the apostles, the good shepherd of the Church of Christ, who laid down his life for his sheep. and with faith and hope let us cry out to him: By thy hierarchial intercession before the Lord maintain the Church of Russia in peace, gather its scattered children into one flock, turn to repentance those who have fallen away from the Orthodox Faith, preserve our land from civil strife, and ask thou the peace of God for the people.
Adorned with a gentle character, showing meekness and loving-kindness to the penitent, thou didst yet remain firm and unshaken in the confession of the Orthodox Faith and in love for the Lord, O Tikhon, holy hierarch of Christ. Pray thou for us, that we be not separated from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
World-orthodoxy (OCA) commemorates St. Tikhon on April 7 n.s. World-orthodoxy claims St. Tikhon for their own, but he is ours. If he came back to earth for a today, we can be certain he would not serve in their churches. Although, he might visit their churches to admonish them...
