Saint Eutyches was a disciple of Saint John the Theologian and a fellow laborer
of the holy Apostle Paul. He preached the Gospel in many places, pulled
down the idols' temples, and suffered imprisonments and many torments
at the hands of the idolaters. He finally reposed in peace in deep
old age in his native city of Sebastia, near Tarsus.
Apolytikion in the Fourth Tone:
As a sharer of the ways and a successor to the throne of the Apostles, O inspired
of God, thou foundest discipline to be a means of ascent to divine vision.
Wherefore, having rightly divided the word of truth, thou didst also contest
for the Faith even unto blood, O Hieromartyr Eutyches. Intercede with Christ
our God that our souls be saved.
Kontakion in the
O God-bearing Eutyches, as the Apostles' successor, and a most becoming rule
and good example to bishops, thou wast also glorified with martyric glory;
and thou shonest like the sun, enlightening all men, driving off the night
of error. Hence, we revere thee, O godly servant of Christ.
