Martyr Dometius of Persia

Troparion — Tone 4

Preparing yourself through prayer and fasting on the mountain, / You destroyed the hosts of spiritual enemies with the weapon of the Cross. / And then courageously preparing yourself for martyrdom, / You were crowned by God for both your life and death, / O ever-memorable venerable martyr Dometius.

Kontakion — Tone 6

Despising corruption and degrading philosophies, / O venerable martyr Dometius, / You became a great guide of monks. / You did not fear the wrath of the king, / Who did not wish to honor Christ the true God. / Therefore in death You did raise the hymn: / God is with me, and no one will be against me.
