Saints Prokopios and Basil, fellow ascetics, lived about the middle of the eighth
century, during the reign of Leo the Isaurian (717-741), from whom
they suffered many things for the sake of the veneration of the holy
icons. They ended their lives in the ascetical discipline.
Apolytikion in the Fourth Tone:
With the rivers of your tears, you have made the barren desert fertile. Through
sighs of sorrow from deep within you, your labors have borne fruit a hundred-fold.
By your miracles you have become a light, shining upon the world. O Prokopios,
our Holy Father, pray to Christ our God, to save our souls.
Kontakion in the
O renowned Procopius, having obtained thee as a morning star this day, the
Church dispelleth all the gloom of evil doctrine, while hon'ring thee, O thou
initiate of Heaven and man of God.
