TROPARUL ŞI VIAŢA SF. ŞTEFAN SAVAITUL

13 iulie

Viaţa Cuviosului Ştefan nu am aflat-o scrisă nicăieri, însă sîntem încredinţaţi, din slujba lui scrisă în Minei, că s-a făcut monah din tînăra lui vîrstă şi cu faptele lui cele bune a strălucit ca o rază în adunările monahiceşti, păzindu-şi curăţia trupului său. Şi prin dorirea cea mare, urmînd purtătorului de Dumnezeu Sava, s-a făcut ucenic al său. Astfel, după moartea aceluia, s-a făcut următor ales şi, cercînd adîncul înţelepciunii, s-a nevoit împotriva hulitorilor eretici. Deci, bineplăcînd lui Dumnezeu, s-a mutat la El şi s-a numărat în ceata cuvioşilor.

Ἀνεψιὸς τοῦ Ἰωάννου Δαμάσκηνου ὁ Στέφανος, γεννήθηκε στὴ Δαμασκὸ τὸ 725 μ.Χ. Τὸν πατέρα του τὸν ἔλεγαν Θεόδωρο Μανσοὺρ καὶ ἦταν ἀδελφὸς τοῦ Ἰωάννου Δαμάσκηνου.

Σὲ ἡλικία δέκα ἐτῶν, ὁ Στέφανος εἰσήχθη ἀπὸ τὸν θεῖο του στὴ Λαύρα τοῦ Ἁγίου Σάββα, ὅπου γιὰ 15 χρόνια ἐκπαιδεύτηκε πολὺ καλὰ στὴ μοναχικὴ ζωή. Μετὰ τὸ θάνατο τοῦ θείου του, ἀποσύρθηκε στὴν ἔρημο καὶ ἐντρυφοῦσε ἀκόμα περισσότερο στὴ μελέτη τοῦ λόγου τοῦ Θεοῦ. Ἐκεῖ ἀσχολήθηκε καὶ μὲ τὴν ποίηση, στὴν ὁποία διακρίθηκε καὶ ἀναδείχθηκε ἕνας ἀπὸ τοὺς μεγαλύτερους ποιητὲς τῆς Ἐκκλησίας μας.Ὁ Στέφανος, ὅτι δημιουργοῦσε μὲ τὸ ταλέντο ποὺ τοῦ ἔδωσε ὁ Θεός, τὸ ἀφιέρωνε στὴ δόξα τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ ὄχι στὸ θαυμασμὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων. Διότι τὸν ἐνέπνεαν τὰ λόγια της Ἁγίας Γραφῆς, ποὺ λένε: «Πὰν ὅτι ἂν ποιῆτε ἐν λόγῳ ἢ ἐν ἔργῳ, πάντα ἐν ὀνόματι Κυρίου Ἰησοῦ, εὐχαριστοῦντες τῷ Θεῷ καὶ πατρὶ δι’ αὐτοῦ». Δηλαδή, κάθε τί ποὺ κάνετε μὲ λόγο ἢ μὲ ἔργο, ὅλα νὰ τὰ πράττετε γιὰ νὰ ἀρέσετε στὸν Κύριο Ἰησοῦ καὶ γιὰ τὴν δόξα Του, εὐχαριστοῦντες μέσῳ Αὐτοῦ τὸν Θεὸ καὶ Πατέρα, ποὺ τόσο πολὺ μᾶς ἀγάπησε.

Ὁ Στέφανος, ἀφοῦ κόσμησε τὴν Ἐκκλησία μὲ τὰ ποιήματά του, πέθανε εἰρηνικὰ τὸ 807 μ.Χ.

Ἀπολυτίκιο. Ἦχος δ’. Ταχὺ προκατάλαβε
Ὡς θεῖον στεφάνωμα, τὴν ἀρετὴν ἐσχηκώς, λαμπρῶς ἐστεφάνωσας, τὴν Ἐκκλησίαν Χριστοῦ, ἐν λόγοις καὶ πράξεσι· σὺ γὰρ ὡς Ἱεράρχης, καὶ σοφὸς θεηγόρος, θείων ᾀσμάτων λύρα, Πάτερ Στέφανε ὤφθης· διὸ ταῖς σαῖς φαιδρότησιν, ἡμᾶς στεφάνωσον.

Κοντάκιον. Ἦχος γ’. Ἡ Παρθένος σήμερον.
Ἀσκητῶν ὁμότροπος, γεγενημένος θεόφρον, Ἱεράρχης ὅσιος, παρὰ Θεοῦ προεβλήθης, ἅπασαν, τὴν Ἐκκλησίαν καταφαιδρύνων, σύριγγι, τῆς θεοπνεύστου σου Πάτερ γλώσσης· διὰ τοῦτό σε τιμῶμεν, ὡς Θεοῦ μύστην, Στέφανε Ὅσιε.

Μεγαλυνάριον.
Στέφανος ἀνθόπλοκος καὶ σεπτός, Στέφανε θεόφρον, δι’ ἀσκήσεως ἀρετῶν, τῇ φωτοστολίστῳ, ἐγένου Ἐκκλησίᾳ· τῇ σῇ γὰρ σταφανοῦται, ἐνθέῳ χάριτι.

Saint Stephen Sabbaites, nephew of St John of Damascus (December 4), was born in the year 725. The ten-year-old boy entered the Lavra of St Sava and spent his whole life at this monastery, sometimes going out into the desert for solitary ascetic deeds. The venerable Stephen was given the gifts of wonderworking and clairvoyance. He healed the sick, cast out devils, and discerned the thoughts of those coming to him for counsel. He died in the year 724, foretelling in advance the day of his death. The Life of the monk was compiled by his student Leontius.
