This Saint took up the monastic life from his youth, and later became Bishop
of Gortynia in Crete. He travelled to Rome, and to Thebes in Upper
Egypt, where through his prayers he ended a drought; there also, after
working many miracles, he reposed in deep old age. His holy relics
were returned to Gortynia and buried at the place called Raxos.
Apolytikion in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone:
You are a guide of Orthodoxy, a teacher of piety and modesty, a luminary
of the world, the God inspired pride of monastics. O wise Eumenios,
you have enlightened everyone by your teachings. You are the harp
of the Spirit. Intercede to Christ our God for the salvation of our
Kontakion in the Second Tone:
Illumined with light from God on high, O blessed one, thou shinest
on us, who lovingly acclaim with hymns thy most holy glorious and
august repose, O Eumenius; for thou ever prayest for us, O Father,
thou faithful Hierarch of the Lord.
