From the Menaion - 21 February


On 21 February, we commemorate our venerable father Timothy the Symbolite.

He who is God of the living and the dead has granted a life adorned with ineffable joy to Timothy, who was adorned by wondrous miracles. On the twenty-first, his body was placed in the tomb.

On this same day, we commemorate our father among the saints Eustathios, Patriarch of Antioch the Great.

O Eustathios, good shepherd and double-edged sword cutting down heresy, you are the subject of our hymns!

By the prayers of Your saints, O Christ our God, take pity on us and save us. Amen.
