This Saint was from the Thebaid of Egypt and struggled many years in the wilderness.
He departed for Constantinople, and having performed many miracles
and healings, he reposed in peace in a mountain cave on the Gulf of
Corinth, where his holy relics are found incorrupt tothe present day.
Apolytikion in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone:
The image of God, was faithfully preserved in you, O Father. For you
took up the Cross and followed Christ. By Your actions you taught
us to look beyond the flesh for it passes, rather to be concerned
about the soul which is immortal. Wherefore, O Holy Patapius, your
soul rejoices with the angels.
Kontakion in the Third Tone:
Having found thy Church to be a place of spiritual healing, all the
people flock with haste thereto, O Saint, and they ask thee to bestow
the ready healing of their diseases and forgiveness of the sins they
wrought in their lifetime; O Patapius most righteous, in every need,
thou art the protector of all.
