This Saint, who was from Cilicia of Asia Minor, became Bishop of Gangra, the
capital of Paplagonia. He was present at the First Ecumenical Council.
Because of his confession of the Orthodox Faith, he was put to death
by the Novatians, a sect which denied that sins committed after Baptism
could be forgiven.
Apolytikion in the First Tone:
Thou didst prove to be a citizen of the desert, an angel in the flesh, and
a wonderworker, O Hypatios, our God-bearing Father. By fasting, vigil, and
prayer thou didst obtain heavenly gifts, and thou healest the sick and the
souls of them that have recourse to thee with faith. Glory to Him that hath
given thee strength. Glory to him that hath crowned thee. Glory to Him that
worketh healings for all through thee.
Kontakion in the
Celebrating blamelessly the sacred rites, O Hypatius, thou didst greatly multiply
the talent that thou wast given; and when thou didst strive in contest, thou
wast presented as a godly sacrifice and holy first-fruits unto Him that glorified
thee with signs and wonders that tongue of man cannot tell.
