TROPARUL ŞI VIAŢA SF. IACOB, EPISCOPUL ŞI MĂRTURISITORUL


21 MARTIE

Cuviosul Iacob, din tinereţe iubind viaţa pustnicească, s-a făcut monah şi se nevoia cu postiri, cu privegheri şi cu multe osteneli. Apoi s-a învrednicit de treapta episcopiei; iar în timpul luptătorilor de icoane, sub împăratul Constantin Copronim (740-775), a fost silit să se lepede de închinarea cinstitelor icoane. Dar, nesupunîndu-se, a suferit multe ispite, izgoniri, închisori, nespuse primejdii, foame, sete şi alte multe feluri de cumplite munci. Apoi şi-a dat fericitul său suflet în mîinile lui Dumnezeu, pentru Care, pînă la moarte, s-a nevoit şi de la Care a luat Împărăţia cerului, în veci bucurîndu-se.

Ασκητής από νεαρή ηλικία ο Όσιος Ιάκωβος, διακρίθηκε για την καθαρή ζωή και την ολόψυχη προσήλωση του στα διδάγματα και τις εντολές της πίστης. Αναδείχθηκε επίσκοπος στα χρόνια των εικονομάχων και διώχθηκε σκληρά, μέχρι του σημείου να στερηθεί ακόμα και το ψωμί. Έμεινε σταθερός μέχρι την τελευταία του πνοή.

 

Saint James, Bishop and Confessor,was inclined toward the ascetic life from his early years. St James left the world and entered the Studite monastery, where he was tonsured. He led a strict life, full of works, fasting and prayer. Pious and well-versed in Holy Scripture, St James was elevated to the bishop’s throne of Catania (Sicily).

During the reign of the iconoclast emperor Constantine V Copronymos (741-775), St James was repeatedly urged not to venerate the holy icons. They exhausted him in prison, starved him, and beat him, but he bravely endured all these torments. St James died in exile.

Ἀπολυτίκιον
Ἦχος πλ. α’. Τὸν συνάναρχον Λόγον.
Ἐγκράτειας ἐκλάμψας Πάτερ Ἰάκωβε, ὡς Ἱεράρχης τοῦ Λόγου καὶ ἀληθὴς λειτουργός, ὠρθοτόμησας πιστῶς λόγον τὸν ἔνθεον οὗπερ τὴν χάριν βέβαιων, δι’ ἀγώνων εὐαγῶν, ἐδίδαξας προσκυνεῖσθε, τὴν τοῦ Σωτῆρος Εἰκόνα, ὦ καὶ πρεσβεύεις ὑπὲρ πάντων ἠμῶν.
