Holy and Glorious Great-martyr Demetrius the Myrrh-streamer of Thessalonica (306)

Holy Great Martyr Demetrios Pray Unto Christ our God for Us.        (Image Found on web original unkown)

Wishing all a Joyous Feast of St Demetrios!   May the Great Saint pray for all those facing suffering for Christ sake.  And May He pray that the Church would live in peace and schisms would cease.

Verily, the inhabited world found thee a great succor in tribulations and a vanquisher of nations, O fight-bearing one. Wherefore, as thou didst demolish the arrogance of Lahosh, and on the battle-field didst hearten Nestor, beseech, O Saint, Christ God to grant us the Great Mercy.    +Troparion, Tone 3

St Demetrios Church in Seattle. The only Church I believe dedicated to the Saint in the Northwest. May the Saints great example in standing up for his Christian faith be an inspiration to us all. Image found on the web.

Verily, God, O Demetrius, who granted thee invincible power hath touched the Church with the live coal of thy blood streams, preserving the city unbreached; for it is established by thee.  +Kontakion, Tone 2
