Saints and Feasts: Eulampius & Eulampia the Martyrs

October 10

Reading:

 

The Martyrs Eulampius and Eulampia were from Nicomedia, and contested for Christ during the reign of Maximian, in the year 296.

 

Apolytikion in the Fourth Tone

Thy Martyrs, O Lord, in their courageous contest for Thee received as the prize the crowns of incorruption and life from Thee, our immortal God. For since they possessed Thy strength, they cast down the tyrants and wholly destroyed the demons’ strengthless presumption. O Christ God, by their prayers, save our souls, since Thou art merciful.

Kontakion in the Third Tone

To the wise Eulampius and brave Eulampia with him, to those siblings in the flesh and Martyrs valiant in courage, we now offer praise and honour, for with the power of Him that dies on the Cross, they have shamed and vanquished all the tyrants’ schemes; for they are the Martyrs’ glory and their rejoicing and boast.
