St. Maximos the Confessor
Commemorated August 13
Troparion of St. Maximos, Tone 3
By an outpouring of the Holy Spirit thou didst pour forth Christ's sacred teachings. Thou didst expound with divine authority the self-emptying of God the Word and wast radiant in thy confession of the True Faith. Glorious Father Maximos, pray to Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.
Kontakion of St. Maximos, Tone 2
O Maximos divinely inspired champion of the Church, sure and illumined exponent of Orthodoxy, thou harp and trumpet of godliness, divine and holy adornment of monks: cease not to intercede for us all.
