Commemorated on January 21
The Holy Martyr Anastasius was a disciple of Saint Maximus the
Confessor, and with him suffered persecution under the Monothelites.
Saint Maximus and two of his disciples were subjected to the cruelest
torments. Each one’s tongue was cut out, and his right hand was cut off.
Then they were exiled to Skemarum in Scythia, enduring many sufferings
and difficulties on the journey.
Saint Anastasius wrote the Life of his teacher, and died in the year 662.
TROPARION - TONE 4
Your holy martyr Anastasius, O Lord, / Through his sufferings has
received an incorruptible crown from You, our God. / For having Your
strength, he laid low his adversaries, / And shattered the powerless
boldness of demons. / Through his intercessions, save our souls!
