Martyr Leontius at Tripoli in Syria

Commemorated June 18

Troparion, Tone 3

Girded with divine strength you triumphed in your contest, O Leontius, the Savior's trophy-bearer. You sprang into the contest like a lion, and destroyed the enemy's might. O glorious martyr, entreat Christ our God to grant us his great mercy!

Troparion, Tone 4

Your holy martyr Leontius and his companions, O Lord, through their sufferings have received incorruptible crowns from You, our God. For having Your strength, they laid low their adversaries, and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. Through their intercessions, save our souls!

Kontakion, Tone 3

You confounded the wicked plans of tyrants and exposed the godless worship of the pagan Greeks. You illumined all mankind with the knowledge of God by your teachings of true piety, divinely-wise martyr. Therefore, Leontius, we lovingly honor your memory.
