Saint Ananias, whose name means "God is gracious," was from Damascus, where by divine revelation he was commanded to baptize the
Apostle Paul (Acts 9: 10-17). He completed the course of martyrdom
when he was stoned to death during the proconsulate of Lucian.
Apolytikion in the Third Tone:
O Holy Apostle Ananias, intercede with the merciful God that He grant
unto our souls forgiveness of offences.
Kontakion in the Second Tone:
Our most fervent advocate in intercession who dost hearken most quickly
to them that pray to thee, receive our supplication, O Ananias, and
implore Christ, Who alone is glorified in the Saints, to have mercy
