Priestmartyr Alexander Hotovitzky
Commemorated December 4
Troparion, Tone 6
In a time of fiery temptations for the Church of Russia, you manifested Christ's love to your flock through meekness and humility. As a good pastor you laid down your life for Him. Pray for us, Hieromartyr Alexander, that our souls may be illumined!
Kontakion, Tone 2
Hieromartyr Alexander, you bore labors and illness upon your shoulders, and joyfully took the narrow path of suffering for Christ, through which you attained the heavenly Kingdom. Entreat God the Savior to grant us mercy on the Day of Judgment!
