Saint Michael, first Metropolitan of Kiev - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

The prophecy of the first-called apostle has been fulfilled today: / Grace has illumined the hills of Kiev and the faith is increased. / Those who were not a people / Are now the people of God, a holy nation, / A flock of Christ of which you, O Michael, are first shepherd, / And you serve it by bringing baptism. / O Hierarch, standing before God pray that all may be saved!

Kontakion — Tone 2

You appeared as a second Moses, / Bringing the vine from Egyptian idolatry into the land of promise. / You said of it: Faith shall be established in this land, / And fruit to nourish the world shall flourish on the summits of Kiev, / More than on the heights of Lebanon. / Having this harvest we bless you, O Hierarch Michael!
