Hieromartyr Simeon the Bishop in Persia
Commemorated April 17
Troparion, Tone 4
As an instructor of divinely inspired doctrines you trained martyrs for contest by your words and deeds. You suffered with them, holy hierarch Simeon, crying out to Christ while hastening to Him: “We are counted as sheep for the slaughter out of love for You, O Savior.”
Kontakion, Tone 4
With your holy band of martyrs you shone forth from Persia like radiant stars. With them we praise you, O Simeon.
