Eumenius the Wonderworker, Bishop of Gortynia

Reading

This Saint took up the monastic life from his youth, and later became Bishop of Gortynia in Crete. He travelled to Rome, and to Thebes in Upper Egypt, where through his prayers he ended a drought; there also, after working many miracles, he reposed in deep old age. His holy relics were returned to Gortynia and buried at the place called Raxos.

Illumined with light from God on high, O blessed one, thou shinest on us, who lovingly acclaim with hymns thy most holy glorious and august repose, O Eumenius; for thou ever prayest for us, O Father, thou faithful Hierarch of the Lord.
