Uncovering of the relics of Saint Demetrius (Dmitri), Metropolitan of Rostov - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

O lover of Orthodoxy and eradicator of schisms, / healer of Russia and new intercessor before God, / you healed the minds of the foolish by your writings. / O blessed Demetrios, harp of the Spirit, pray to Christ God that our souls may be saved.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Let us bless Demetrios, the golden-worded teacher, the radiant star of Russia who shone forth from Kiev, / and reached Rostov by way of Novgorod and Seversk, illuminating the entire land with his teachings and miracles, / for he wrote down all those things which are for our edification / so that, like Paul, he might win all for Christ and save our souls through the Orthodox Faith.
