Hieromartyr Maxim Sandovich - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

By the Providence of God you were sent to the Mountain of Pochaev / for the knowledge of the truth of the Orthodox faith, / and receiving true teaching in the city of Zhitomir, / as a soldier of Christ you came to our land. / For Orthodoxy and your own people you accepted a martyr's crown. / Therefore you confirmed your native land in Orthodoxy. / O Priest-Martyr Maksym, entreat Christ God that our souls may be saved!

Kontakion — Tone 2

Your Martyrdom, O Father Maxsym, / enlightened and roused up our people to the Orthodox Faith. / Giving up your own life to Christ God, / you endured torments and the suffering of imprisonment. / Pray for us and for your land before Christ God!
