Saint Dius, who was from Antioch in Syria, later came to Constantinople and established
a monastery there, and wrought many wonders. He flourished in the time
of Saint Theodosius the Great (379-395).
the First Tone:
Thou didst prove to be a citizen of the desert, an angel in the flesh, and
a wonderworker, O Dius, 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
In God, thou wast armed with purity of heart and soul; and taking in hand unceasing
prayer as though a spear, Father Dius, thou didst mightily cut down all the
demonic hordes, thou who workest wonders and signs and prayest unceasingly
for all of us.
