The Apostle Herodion, whom Saint Paul mentions in his Epistle to the Romans (16:11)
and calls his "kinsman," was ordained presbyter and then Bishop of New Patras, where he was slain by
Jews and pagans. Saint Agabus is mentioned in Acts 21:10-11, where
he prophesied Saint Paul's arrest in Jerusalem at the hands of the
Jewish leaders. In Acts 11:27-28 it is mentioned also that this Saint
foretold the great famine that would come to pass in the time of Claudius
Caesar. Having preached the Gospel throughout various regions, he departed
to the Lord. The Apostle Rufus became Bishop of Thebes in Greece. The
Apostles Asyncritus and Phlegon preached Christ in many places, suffered
many afflictions at the hands of the pagans and Jews, and departed
unto the Lord. The Apostle Hermes is mentioned with them in the Epistle
to the Romans (16:13-14).
Apolytikion in the Third Tone:
O Holy Apostles, intercede to our merciful God, that He may grant our souls
forgiveness of sins.
