St. Emilian the Confessor of the Icons, Bishop of Cyzicus
Commemorated August 8
Troparion - Tone 3
In confessing the Faith you proclaimed Orthodox doctrine and were unjustly exiled for rebuking the wicked king. Righteous and glorious Emilian, the boast of Cyzicus, entreat Christ God to grant us His great mercy.
Kontakion - Tone 3
The Church for which you suffered glorifies you in hymns, O Emilian; you were a valiant champion of the Trinity, therefore we honor your memory. Deliver your servants from all assaults of the enemy.
