St. Meletius the Archbishop of Antioch


St. Meletius the Archbishop of Antioch

Commemorated February 12

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, Meletius, pray to Christ our God to save our souls!

Kontakion, Tone 6

The apostate Macedonius fled in fear before your spiritual courage, but we your servants run to you to gain your intercession! Father Meletius, converser with the angels and fiery sword of Christ our God, we praise you as a star bringing light to all!
