The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Fortunatus of the Seventy is commemorated by the Church on June 15 with Achaicus and Stephen, and on January 4 with the Seventy. The Seventy Apostles were chosen and sent forth to preach by Christ (Luke 10:1).
- Holy apostle Fortunatus of the Seventy;
- Eentreat the merciful;
- To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.
Kontakion (Tone 4 )
- The Church ever sees you as a shining star, O apostle Fortunatus,
- Your miracles have manifested great enlightenment.
- Therefore we cry out to Christ:
- "Save those who with faith honor Your apostle, O Most Merciful One."
