Martyr John of Vilnius, Lithuania - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

You who have rejected earthly honor and glory, / Valiant and honorable combatants, / You firmly and courageously suffered torments for the faith, / You have died for the life of all for the Master. / Therefore Christ also gloriously encircles you with a cloud column from heaven / And honors and crowns you with crowns from the throne of glory: / Standing before Him with the angels, pray to save our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 3

Released from the fatherly delusions O Saints, you were led to Christ: / By the diligence of all your souls you put human cleverness to death. / And so attaining the victory of true honor, / Unceasingly pray to our Master for us all.
