18 MAI: Pomenirea sfinţilor mucenici Petru, Dionisie (Denisa), Andrei, Pavel şi Hristina (Cristina) fecioara (ROMANIAN, GREEK, ENGLISH)

 Pomenirea sfinţilor mucenici Petru, Dionisie (Denisa), Andrei, Pavel şi Hristina (Cristina) fecioara

CristinaDintre aceştia sfântul Petru era din oraşul ce se cheamă Lampsac. Adunându-se la Dacno, domnul cetăţii evridinilor, a silit pe sfântul Petru ca să jertfească Afroditei, şi nevrând acesta să se supună, ci mărturisind pe Hristos Dumnezeu, i-au zdrobit tot trupul cu legături, cu lemne şi cu roate. Pentru aceasta în timpul chinurilor şi-a dat duhul şi a luat de la Dumnezeu cununa nevoinţei. Iar Pavel şi Andrei se trăgeau cu neamul din Mesopotamia, şi fiind ostaşi sub zisul Dacno, s-au dus la Atena cu el. Şi fiind prinşi acolo Dionisie şi Hristina, Pavel şi Andrei i-au luat asupra lor să-i păzească, dar mai apoi ei au poftit pe sfânta Hristina, care era fecioară şi frumoasă şi în vârstă de nuntă, ca să se împreune cu dânşii spre păcat. Iar ea neînduplecându-se nici de cum, în loc să o silească ei şi-au schimbat gândul datorită învăţăturilor ei, şi au crezut în Hristos. Pentru aceasta Pavel, Andrei şi Dionisie au fost ucişi şi îngropaţi de mulţimea pietrelor azvirlite asupra lor; iar sfânta Hristina aruncându-se peste ei, i s-a tăiat capul.


Οἱ Ἅγιοι Πέτρος, Διονύσιος, Ἀνδρέας, Παῦλος, Χριστίνα, Ἡράκλειος, Παυλίνος καὶ Βενέδιμος οἱ Μάρτυρες

Οἱ Ἅγιοι Μάρτυρες Πέτρος, Διονυσία, Ἀνδρέας, Παῦλος, Χριστίνα, Ἡράκλειος, Παυλίνος καὶ Βενέδιμος, μαρτύρησαν κατὰ τοὺς χρόνους τοῦ αὐτοκράτορος Δεκίου (249 – 251 μ.Χ.). Ὁ Πέτρος καταγόταν ἀπὸ τὴ Λάμψακο καί, ὅταν τὸν ὁδήγησαν μπροστὰ στὸν ἄρχοντα τῆς Ἀβύδου, Δέκιο, γιὰ νὰ θυσιάσει στὴν Ἀφροδίτη, ἐκεῖνος ἀντίθετα, ὁμολόγησε μὲ παρρησία τὸν Χριστό. Τότε βασανίσθηκε σκληρὰ καὶ τελικὰ παραδόθηκε στὸν δήμιο.

Ὁ Παῦλος καὶ ὁ Ἀνδρέας κατάγονταν ἀπὸ τὴν Μεσοποταμία καὶ συνυπηρετοῦσαν στὸ στρατὸ τοῦ Δεκίου ὑπὸ τὸν στρατηγὸ Δάκνο. Ὅταν ἐπισκέφθηκαν τὴν Ἀθήνα, πληροφορήθηκαν γιὰ τὴν χριστιανικὴ πίστη, κατηχήθηκαν καὶ βαπτίσθηκαν Χριστιανοί, καταγγέλθηκαν, συνελήφθηκαν μὲ τὸν Διονύσιο καὶ τὴν παρθένο Χριστίνα καὶ ὁμολόγησαν μὲ θάρρος τὴν πίστη τους στὸν Κύριο. Ἒτσι ὑπέστησαν τὸν διὰ λιθοβολισμοῦ θάνατο, ἐνῷ ἡ Ἁγία Χριστίνα ἀποκεφαλίσθηκε.
Οἱ Ἅγιοι Ἡράκλειος, Παυλίνος καὶ Βενέδιμος κατάγονταν ἀπὸ τὴν Ἀθήνα. Ἐκεῖ ἀγωνίζονταν σκληρὰ κατὰ τὴν πλάνης τῶν εἰδώλων καὶ τῶν φιλοσόφων, οἱ ὁποῖοι πολεμοῦσαν τὴν χριστιανικὴ πίστη. Μετὰ ἀπὸ καταγγελία συνελήφθησαν, βασανίσθηκαν καὶ ὁδηγήθηκαν ἐνώπιον τοῦ ἄρχοντος τῆς πόλεως τῶν Ἀθηνῶν, ὁ ὁποῖος τοὺς συμβούλεψε νὰ ἐπιστρέψουν στὴν εἰδωλολατρία. Ἐκεῖνοι ἀρνήθηκαν καὶ τελικὰ ἀποκεφαλίσθηκαν δίδοντας τὴν δική τους μαρτυρία Χριστοῦ.

Ἀπολυτίκιον. Ἦχος δ’. Ὁ ὑψωθεὶς ἐν τῷ Σταυρῷ.
Τῶν ἀθλοφόρων τὸν ὀκτάριθμον δῆμον, μαρτυρικοῖς ἐγκωμιάσωμεν ὕμνοις, Παυλῖνον Διονύσιον καὶ Πέτρον ὁμοῦ, Ἀνδρέαν καὶ Βενέδιμον, τὸν θεόφρονα Παῦλον, Ἡράκλειον τὸν ἔνδοξον, καὶ Χριστίναν τὴν θείαν· οὗτοι καὶ γὰρ πρεσβεύουσιν ἀεί, ὑπὲρ τοῦ κόσμου, Χριστῷ τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν.

Κοντάκιον. Ἦχος δ’. Ἐπεφάνης σήμερον.
Διαφόρων πόλεων ἐξωρμημένοι, οὐρανίου πόλεως, πολῖται ὢφθητε σεπτοί, χορόν λαμπρόν συγκροτήσαντες, Μάρτυρες θεῖοι, Τριάδος ὑπέρμαχοι.

Μεγαλυνάριον.
Πίστει στρατευσάμενοι τῷ Χριστῷ, θεόπλοκος δῆμος, καὶ γενναῖος συνασπισμός, ὤφθητε ἐν ἄθλοις, ὀκτάριθμοι ὁπλῖται, ἐχθρῶν τὰς παρατάξεις, περιτρεψάμενοι.

Martyr Peter of Ancyra, who suffered under Decius

Commemorated on May 18

The Holy Martyrs Peter, Dionysius, Andrew, Paul, Christina suffered under emperor Decius (249-251). Peter suffered in the city of Lampsaka. Brought to trial before the prefect Optimines, he bravely confessed his faith in Christ. They tried to force the youth to deny the Lord and worship the goddess Venus. The martyr refused to do this, declaring for everyone to hear, that a Christian would not bow to the idol of a lecherous woman.

St Peter was subjected to fierce tortures, but he endured them with courage, giving thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for giving him His all-powerful help. Then he was beheaded.
