Holy Epain or Estapin
Holy Epain or Estapin is called upon more particularly against the varixes.
Holy Epain or Estapin lived in Palestine. The governor of the province wanted to make him sacrifice to the pagan gods; but no threat could bend the constancy of the Saint who then had the distinct head and which died thanking God for having happiness to undergo the martyr because of his Name.
Ô God which, by an admirable effect of your power, created the man with your image and which, by a wonder of kindness, raised him after his fall, grant to me, by the intercession of Holy Epain or Estapin, the cure that I beg you to grant to me. By Jesus-Christ Our-Lord. Amen.
Holy Epain or Estapin, which you lean always so tenderly on our miseries, request for me.
You make thunder on me your judgments, Seigneur, and all my bones trembled of terror, and my heart is in a deep terror. Prohibited, frightened, I consider that the skies aren’t pure in your eyes. If you found the evil in your angels, and if you didn’t save them that will this be of me? The stars fell from the sky: me, dust, until do I have to thus wait? The men, whose works appeared creditable, fell as low as one can fall, and I saw those which nourished bread of the angels to make their delights of the grazing ground of the pourceaux one. It’s thus not holiness, Seigneur, if you withdraw your hand; not wisdom which is useful, if you don’t direct it any more; not force which is help, if you cease supporting it; not ensured chastity, if you don’t take defense of it; not vigilance which us serf, if you don’t take care yourself for us. Left with us same, we insert in the floods and we perish: you come to us, we are raised and we live. Because we are staggering, but you strengthen us; we are tepid, but you ignite us. Amen.
