45 Holy Martyrs at Nicopolis in Armenia - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

(Podoben: Be quick to anticipate)
You were chosen from on high as a holy army, / O Forty-five Martyrs of Christ, / lawfully contesting for the glory of Christ, / and by your struggles you freed us from the delusion of polytheism. / Because of these struggles, we glorify all of you.

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyrs, O Lord, / through their suffering have received incorruptible crowns from You, our God. / For having Your strength, they laid low their adversaries, / and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through their intercessions save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 8

(Podoben: As the first fruits of our nature.)
You endured many torments for the sake of Christ, O Martyrs. / You destroyed idolatrous polytheism and godless error by the power of Christ. / Teach us to cry aloud with faith: Alleluia.
