[[The holy, glorious and all-laudable '''Apostle]] Pudens ''' (also ''Poudes'') of the [[Apostles#The Seventy|Seventy ]] was chosen by [[Jesus Christ]] to preach the good news contained in the [[Gospel]]. His [[feast day]] is celebrated on [[April 14]] or [[April 15|15]], and he is also commemorated on [[January 4]] among the Seventy.
[[Saint]] Pudens was a preacher of God’s God's Word as well as an esteemed member of the Roman Senate. The saint took [[Apostle Peter]] and [[Apostle Paul]] into his home when they were nearby. When the apostles dwelled in his home, Christians gathered there to hear their words. St. Pudens’ Pudens' house was eventually converted into a church with the name “Pastorum"Pastorum." In [[Holy Scripture|Scripture]], he is mentioned in [[II Timothy|2 Timothy]] 4:21: "Do thy diligence to come before winter. Eubulus greeteth thee, and Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brethren." He gave up his life and became a [[martyr]] under Emperor Nero.  ==Hymns==[[Troparion]] ([[Tone]] 3) []:Holy Apostle of Christ,:Entreat the merciful God:To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressionsTroparion (Tone 4) []:Together let us honor the threefold choir of Christ's Apostles,:[[Apostle Aristarchus|Aristarchus]], Pudens and the holy [[Apostle Trophimus|Trophimus]].:Like rivers filled with the wisdom of God:They poured out the water of the Word for all the world.:Through their [[intercession]]s, O Christ our God, have mercy on us![[Kontakion]] (Tone 1) []:Apostles of Christ and laborers of the Savior,:You are the light of the world.:Intercede for us who praise your holy memory,:And pray that we may be saved. ==External links==*[ Apostle Pudens of the Seventy], April 15 ([[OCA]])*[ Apostle Pudens of the Seventy], January 4 (OCA)*[ Aristarchos, Pudens, Trophimos the Apostles of the 70] ([[GOARCH]])*[ The Holy Apostles Aristarchus, Pudens and Trophimus] (''[[Prologue of Ohrid]]'') [[Category:Biblical Saints|Pudens]][[Category:Martyrs|Pudens]][[Category:Saints|Pudens]][[Category:Seventy Apostles|Pudens]][[Category:Ante-Nicene Saints|Pudens]][[Category:1st-century saints]] [[ro:Apostolul Pudens]]
