Petar (Zimonjic), Metropolitan of Dabro-Bosnia, Hieromartyr
Because of your faith in God and His Righteousness,
you have suffered in the flesh.
The earth sorrows, yet you have saved your souls, Heaven rejoices!
Your ancestors sang aloud with the Heaven,
greeting you at the gate of Paradise with song:
"Your names are in the Book of Eternity,
enter into Paradise, O children of immortality!"
We your posterity on earth, cry out in unison:
Holy Serbian New Martyrs, pray for us!
Troparion, Tone 8
