TROPARUL ŞI VIAŢA SF. MC. MOCHIE 

11 MAI

În această lună, în ziua a unsprezecea, pomenirea sfântului sfinţitului mucenic Mochie.

MochieAcesta a fost în zilele împăratului Diocleţian şi ale lui Laodichie, proconsulul Europei. Şi era preot al sfintei biserici a lui Dumnezeu celei din Amfipol. Părinţii lui se numeau Eufratie şi Eustatia, trăgându-se din Roma cea veche, de bun neam şi bogaţi. Sfântul Mochie se nevoia pururea la învăţătură şi propovăduia pe Hristos, şi poruncea şi-i sfătuia pe toţi să se apere de rătăcirea idolilor.

Deci făcând proconsulul jertfă la zeul fals Dionis, şi adunându-se închinătorii de idoli, s-a apropiat sfântul şi a răsturnat jertfelnicul. Iar când l-au prins a mărturisit pe Hristos Dumnezeu adevărat, şi a fost supus la felurite şi cumplite chinuri, de către proconsulul Laodichie, iar după moartea acestuia sfântul a fost chinuit de prinţul Talasie şi proconsulul Maxim. Astfel fiind dat la fiare, acelea nu-i stricară nimic. Pentru aceasta tot poporul a strigat ca să-l slobozească şi a fost trimis către stăpâ-nitorul Filipisie, la Perintos cetate a Traciei, care acum se cheamă Iraclia. Şi de acolo a fost trimis la Bizanţ, unde i s-a tăiat capul şi a fost îngropat o milă de loc de la cetate în laturi. Iar după aceea, zidindu-i marele Constantin o biserică înfrumuseţată şi de mult preţ, a fost mutat sfântul în ea.

Ὁ Ἅγιος Μώκιος ὁ Ἱερομάρτυρας

Ὁ Ἅγιος Ἱερομάρτυρας Μώκιος καταγόταν ἀπὸ τὴ Ρώμη καὶ γεννήθηκε ἀπὸ γονεῖς εὔπορους καὶ εὐσεβεῖς, τὸν Εὐφράτιο καὶ τὴν Εὐσταθία. Ἀγαπώντας τὸν ἱερατικὸ βίο, ἐπιδόθηκε ἀπὸ μικρὴ ἡλικία στὴ σπουδὴ τῶν ἱερῶν γραμμάτων καὶ χειροτονήθηκε ἱερέας τῆς Ἐκκλησίας στὴν Ἀμφίπολη τῆς Θράκης. Ὡς ἱερεὺς δίδασκε μὲ θερμὸ ζῆλο τοὺς εἰδωλολάτρες νὰ ἐγκαταλείψουν τὴν πλάνη τους καὶ νὰ προσέλθουν στὴν ἀληθινὴ πίστη τοῦ Χριστοῦ. Μία ἡμέρα, ὅταν ὁ ἀνθύπατος Λαοδίκιος ἐπρόκειτο νὰ θυσιάσει στὸ θεὸ Διόνυσο, προσῆλθε ὁ Μώκιος καὶ μπροστὰ σὲ ὅλους ἀνέτρεψε τὸν βωμὸ καὶ διασκόρπισε τὰ θυμιάματα. Γιὰ τὸν λόγο αὐτὸ συνελήφθη καὶ ἀφοῦ κρεμάσθηκε καὶ γδάρθηκε μὲ σιδερένια νύχια στὸ πρόσωπο καὶ στὰ πλευρά, τέθηκε πάνω σὲ φωτιά. Παρέμεινε ὅμως ἀβλαβὴς καὶ ρίχθηκε δέσμιος στὴ φυλακή. Ἀργότερα ὑποβλήθηκε σὲ νέα ἀνάκριση καὶ ὑπέστη πιέσεις ἀπὸ τὸ νέο ἀνθύπατο Μάξιμο νὰ θυσιάσει στὰ εἴδωλα. Ἀρνήθηκε νὰ ὑπακούσει καὶ ὑποβλήθηκε σὲ νέα σκληρότερα βασανιστήρια. Τὸν ἔδεσαν πάνω σὲ τροχὸ καὶ καταμωλωπίσθηκε καὶ στὴν συνέχεια τὸν ἔριξαν στὰ θηρία. Ἀλλὰ καὶ πάλι ἐξῆλθε ἀβλαβής. Μπροστὰ στὰ θαύματα αὐτὰ ὁ λαὸς ζήτησε τὴν ἀπελευθέρωση τοῦ Ἁγίου, ὁ ἀνθύπατος ὅμως ἀπέστειλε αὐτὸν στὴν Ἡράκλεια καὶ ἀπὸ ἐκεῖ ἀπεστάλη ἀπὸ τὸν ἄρχοντα Φιλιππήσιο στὸ Βυζάντιο, ὅπου τὸ 288 μ.Χ., ἐπὶ αὐτοκράτορος Διοκλητιανοῦ (284 – 305 μ.Χ.), ὑπέστη τὸν διὰ ἀποκεφαλισμοῦ θάνατο.
Ἀργότερα ὁ Μέγας Κωνσταντίνος ἀνήγειρε πρὸς τιμὴν τοῦ Ἁγίου Μωκίου μεγαλοπρεπὴ ναό, στὸν ὁποῖο κατέθεσε καὶ τὰ ἱερὰ λείψανα αὐτοῦ. Στὸ ναὸ αὐτὸν γινόταν αὐτοκρατορικὴ προσέλευση κατὰ τὴν Μεσοπεντηκοστή.  Στὸ ναό, ἐπίσης, φυλασσόταν τὸ ἱερὸ λείψανο τοῦ Ἁγίου Σαμψὼν τοῦ Ξενοδόχου.
Ἀπολυτίκιον. Ἦχος α’. Χορὸς Ἀγγελικός.
Χριστῷ ἱερουργῶν, ἱερεὺς ὢν τῆς δόξης, θυσίαν λογικήν, καὶ ὁλόκληρον θῦμα, ἀθλήσεως ἄνθραξι, σεαυτὸν προσενήνοχας· ὅθεν Μώκιε, διπλῷ στεφάνῳ σε στέφει, ὁ δοξάσας σε, ὡς δοξασθείς σου τοῖς ἄθλοις, Χριστὸς ὁ φιλάνθρωπος.

Κοντάκιον. Ἦχος β’. Τοῖς τῶν αἱμάτων.
Καθοπλισθείς, τῷ θυρεῷ τῆς πίστεως, τῶν ἀσεβῶν, τὰς παρατάξεις ἔτρεψας, καὶ ἐδέξω δόξης στέφανον, παρὰ Κυρίου μάκαρ Μώκιε· διὸ μετὰ Ἀγγέλων ἀγαλλόμενος, περίσωζε κινδύνων τοὺς ὑμνοῦντάς σε, πρεσβεύων ἀπαύστως ὑπὲρ πάντων ἡμῶν.

Μεγαλυνάριον.
Μωκώμενος πλάνην τὴν δυσσεβῆ, ὡς τῆς εὐσεβείας, θεορρήμων ἱερουργός, ᾔσχυνας τοῖς ἄθλοις, ἐν ἀσθενείᾳ Μάρτυς, τοῦ σκότους τὸν προστάτην, Μώκιε ἔνδοξε.

Hieromartyr Mocius the Presbyter of Amphipolis in Macedonia

Commemorated on May 11

Saint Mocius was a presbyter in Macedonia in the city of Amphipolis. During a persecution against Christians under the emperor Diocletian (284-305), St Mocius exhorted the pagans who had assembled for the pagan festival of Dionysus (Bacchus), to abandon iniquity and the vile customs which accompanied this celebration. He urged them to repent and be converted to the Lord Jesus Christ, and be cleansed through holy Baptism.

The saint was brought to trial before the governor of Laodicea. When threatened with torture, he replied, „My death for Christ is a great accomplishment for me.” St Mocius was subjected to torture, which he bore with marvelous endurance, and did not cease to denounce the idol-worshippers.

Taken to the pagan temple of Dionysus, the saint shattered the idols when he called upon Jesus Christ. After this he was put into a red-hot oven, where he remained unharmed, but the flames coming out of the oven scorched the governor.

Again the commander subjected St Mocius to fierce torture, which he endured with the help of God. He was given to wild beasts to be eaten, but they did not touch him. The lions lay down at his feet. The people, seeing such miracles, urged that the saint be set free. The governor ordered the saint to be sent to the city of Perinth, and from there to Byzantium, where St Mocius was executed.

Before his death he gave thanks to the Lord for giving him the strength to persevere to the very end. His last words were, „Lord, receive my spirit in peace.” Then he was beheaded. St Mocius died about the year 295. Later, the emperor Constantine built a church in honor of the hieromartyr Mocius and transferred his holy passion-bearing relics into it.

    Ucenicii dupa ce au inteles Invierea nu s-au mai ascuns. Se vede ca iti mai trebuie ceva vreme pana sa intelegi. Pana atunci renunta sa mai scrii maculatura, ramai in intunericul necunostintei, nu mai intuneca si pe altii. Doar numele celor ce marturisesc cu adevarat vor fi in Cartea Vietii. Al tau e in bezna, in umbra mortii.
