Saint Methodius, Patriarch of Constantinople - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

You appeared to your flock as a rule of faith, / an image of humility, and a teacher of abstinence. / Because of your lowliness, heaven was opened to you; / because of your poverty, riches were granted to you! / O Holy Bishop Methodius, pray to Christ our God to save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 2

You contended on earth as one already delivered from the body, / and thus you deserved heaven, O Methodius! / You proclaimed throughout the world the righteousness of venerating Icons, / spending your days in hardship and effort, / and now you still rebuke those who do not honor the image of Christ.
