Saint Alypius was from Adrianople of Bithynia; having lived upon a pillar for
fifty-three years, he reposed about the year 607, at the age of one
Apolytikion in the First Tone:
Thou becamest a pillar of patience and didst emulate the Forefathers,
O righteous one: Job in his sufferings, Joseph in temptations, and
the life of the bodiless while in the body, O Alypius, our righteous
Father, intercede with Christ God that our souls be saved.
Kontakion in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone:
Today the Church doth glorify and hymn thee, O Alypius, as a foundation
of virtues and comeliness of the ascetics and the monks. By thy prayers,
as the namesake of true freedom from sorrow, free from their grievous
sins all them that praise and honour thy struggles and deeds of excellence.
