Saint Demetrius (Dimitri), Metropolitan of Rostov - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

O Pillar of Orthodoxy who pulled out schism by its roots, / healer of Russia and new intercessor before God, / Thou didst heal the minds of the foolish by thy writings. / Blessed Demetrios, harp of the Spirit, entreat Christ God for the salvation of our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 8

We bless Demetrios, the golden-worded teacher, the Russian star who shone forth from Kiev, / and by way of the new northern city reached Rost?v, illuminating all the 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.
