Hilarion the New
Reading from the Synaxarion:
Saint Hilarion took up the monastic life early, turned to a life of seclusion. He was a disciple of St Gregory the Dekapolite, and was named after the earlier Hilarion (see the note below). As Abbot of the Monastery of Pelecete in Asia Minor (believed to be in Bithynia, not far from Triglia), he suffered much from the Iconoclasts, and was accused by the Emperor Leo of heresy after refusing to burn the ikons in his monastery.
Eventually St Hilarion the New, was imprisoned, but released when Emperor Michael II ascended to the throne. After Michael though, another iconoclast took the throne, Theophilus (god-loving, one of the names of Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart) and this time Hilarion was imprisoned on the island of Aphousia, and then freed upon the orders of St Theodora. In the end, he died quietly in 845 at the Dalmatius Monastery in Constantinople.
Apolytikion of Hilarion the New in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone
The image of God, was faithfully preserved in you, O Father.
For you took up the Cross and followed Christ. By Your actions you taught us to look beyond the flesh for it passes, rather to be concerned about the soul which is immortal.
Wherefore, O Holy Hilarion, your soul rejoices with the angels.
