Martyr Abdechalas in Persia - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

As an instructor of divinely inspired doctrines / you trained martyrs for contest by your words and deeds. / You suffered with them, holy hierarch Simeon, / crying out to Christ while hastening to Him: / “We are counted as sheep for the slaughter out of love for You, O Savior.”

Kontakion — Tone 4

With your holy band of martyrs / you shone forth from Persia like radiant stars. / With them we praise you, O Simeon.
