Saint Achillius was one of the 318 God-bearing Fathers who were present at the
First Ecumenical Council; after returning to Larissa he cast down many
pagan temples, delivered many from the demons, and raised up churches
to the glory of God. He reposed about the middle of the fourth century.
Apolytikion in the Fourth Tone:
The truth of things hath revealed thee to thy flock as a rule of faith, an
icon of meekness, and a teacher of temperance; for this cause, thou hast
achieved the heights by humility, riches by poverty. O Father and Hierarch
Achilles, intercede with Christ God that our souls be saved.
Kontakion in the
Plagal of the Fourth Tone:
Let us all praise with hymns and songs divine Achillius, the brightly shining
and unwaning star of all the world, who is Larissa's unsleeping and loving
shepherd. Let us cry to him: Since thou hast boldness with the Lord, do thou
rescue us from every raging storm of life, that we may cry to thee: Rejoice,
O Father Achillius.
