St. James of Persia

Commemorated November 27

Troparion of Great Matryr James of Persia, Tone 4

James the Martyr and scion of Persia drowned the dragon in his blood by his contest: he was dismembered for the Faith and became the Saviour's trophy-bearer. He intercedes unceasingly for our souls.

Kontakion of Great Matryr James of Persia , Tone 2

Thou didst listen to thy wife and consider the judgment O courageous James. Thou didst spurn the threats and commands of the Persians and thy body was pruned like a vine. We praise thee; O noble Martyr.
