Troparion of St Kessog, Tone 6

Thy life was resplendent with miracles, O Hierarch Kessog,
and as thou didst devote thy life to missionary labours,
teach us the way to devote our lives to the service of the Church
that Christ our God will have mercy on our souls.

Kontakion of St Kessog, Tone 4

That God is not served by idleness is the message of thy life, O Wonderworker Kessog.
For thy ceaseless efforts thou art rewarded in heaven
and this day art praised by the Lord's lazy and most unprofitable servants.

    This rare Icon was exactly as it was billed online. Completely satisfied with Uncut Mountain Supply and their mass selection of Iconography of the Saints.
