St. Stylianos was from Paphlagonia living in the latter 6th century and early
7th century. He loved the Lord Jesus Christ with his whole heart and
lived in strict asceticism. When he fell asleep in the Lord, his face
shone like the sun and an angel appeared to take his soul to Glory.
His prayers have worked many miracles, both during his earthly life
and since. He is of special help to children who are ill and to childless
couples. He is known as a protector of orphans.
Apolytikion in the Third Tone:
Holy Stylianos, thou wast a tower of abstinence and an unshaken pillar
of the Church. Dedicated to God from thy youth, thou didst become
a dwelling-place of the Spirit. O righteous Father, intercede with
Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.
