Martyr Eugene of Melitene

Commemorated on November 7

Saint Eugene was one of the thirty-two soldiers beheaded with St Hieron of Melitene.


Your thirty-three holy martyrs, O Lord,
through their sufferings have received incorruptible crowns from You, our God.
For having Your strength, they laid low their adversaries,
and shattered the powerless boldness of demons.
Through their intercessions, save our souls!


The radiant choir of martyrs, the light-bearing company,
spiritually descends to us, enlightening the Church with brilliant rays.
Therefore as we celebrate their honored memory,
we ask You, our Savior:
through their prayers deliver us from misfortunes
so that we may sing to You: "Alleluia."
