May God make it always received, year after year, with reassurance and tranquility, while our sins after forgiven by the tender mercies of our God my fathers and brothers.
The Fourth Day of the Blessed Month of Baramudah
Martyrdom of the Saints Victor, Decius,
Eirene the Virgin, and those with them men, women, and virgins
On this day the saints Victor, Decius, Eirene
the virgin and those with them from men, women and virgins were martyred.
These saints were during the reign of Emperor Constantine and his son who
destroyed many idol temples and changed them to churches on the name of
the Virgin Mary and the Saints. When Emperor Julian the infidel reigned,
he supported idol worshipping, honored their priests, and slew many Christians.
Some pagans informed the Emperor about these saints and how they destroyed
the temples and the idols. He seized them, tortured them with different
kinds of tortures and finally cut off their heads and they received the
crowns of martyrdom.
May their prayers be with us and glory be to God forever. Amen.
