Glorification of the Priestmartyr Alexander Hotovitzky

Troparion — Tone 6

In a time of fiery temptations for the Church of Russia, / you manifested Christ’s love to your flock through meekness and humility. / As a good pastor you laid down your life for Him. / Pray for us, Hieromartyr Alexander, that our souls may be illumined!

Kontakion — Tone 2

Hieromartyr Alexander, / you bore labors and illness upon your shoulders, / and joyfully took the narrow path of suffering for Christ, / through which you attained the heavenly Kingdom. / Entreat God the Savior to grant us mercy on the Day of Judgment!
