St. Calliopios the Martyr

Commemorated April 7

Troparion of St. Calliopios, Tone 5

Thou didst blossom like an unfading rose and gladden Christ's Church by thy contest and the fragrance of thine exploits; by thy witness in the stadium thou didst share in thy Master's Passion, O blessed Calliopios.

Kontakion of St. Calliopios, Tone 3

When thy mother saw thee adorned with the sacred wounds of martyrdom in conformity to the Lord's holy Passion, her will was one with thine. Together with her entreat Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.
