Troparion — Tone 4
You appeared to your flock as a rule of faith, / An image of humility, and a teacher of abstinence. / Because of your lowliness, heaven was opened to you; / Because of your poverty, riches were granted to you! / O Holy Bishop Methodius, pray to Christ our God to save our souls!
Kontakion — Tone 2
You contended on earth as one already delivered from the body, / And thus you deserved heaven, O Methodius! / You proclaimed throughout the world the righteousness of venerating Icons, / Spending your days in hardship and effort, / And now you still rebuke those who do not honor the image of Christ.
