Saints and Feasts: Nazarius, Gervasius, Protasius, & Celsus of Milan

October 14

Reading:

 

The holy Martyrs all contested for piety’s sake in Milan; after the passage of much time their holy relics were discovered and given honourable burial by Saint Ambrose.

 

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 Second Tone

In shedding the light of miracles like shining lamps, O Martyrs of God, ye make the whole creation bright, at all times dispelling the deepest night of sickness and maladies and without cease pleading with Christ, the only God, that He grant His mercy to us.
