St. Menas of Alexandria, Martyr

An icon of St. Menas of Alexandria, Martyr.

The Icon

Feast Day - December 10th.

St. Menas is shown in the robes of his office as the Emperor's representative to Alexandria. The cross he is holding is the cross of Martyrdom which he suffered for disobeying the emperor who sent him to persecute Christians.

Troparion in tone 8

By ascetic penitence the martyrs of Christ deadened the disorder of flaming passions;
They received the grace of healing the infirmities of the afflicted.
They continue to live after death by performing miracles:
Truly great is the miracle whereby healing comes from their bones.
Glory to You, the Only Creator and God!

Kontakion in tone 1

Let us sing praise in honor of the glorious Menas,
And of his companions, the Holy Hermogenes and Eugraphus!
For they have honored the Lord,
And fought for His glory.
They are worthy of numbering with the angels in heaven,
And are bountiful in their miracles!
