Finding of the relics of Venerable Maximus the Greek (July 4, 1996) - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

Having been made resplendent by the glory of the Spirit, / you were deemed worthy of the wisdom of those who speak with eloquence, and the knowledge of things divine. / Having illumined the hearts of men who were in the darkness of ignorance with the light of piety, / you appeared as a great luminary of Orthodoxy, O Venerable Maximus. / And after leaving your country out of divine zeal, you became a settler in the Russian lands, / where the right hand of the Most High crowned you as you endured fetters and prison, and glorified you with miracles. / Intercede unceasingly for us who, with love, honor your memory.
