Saints Timothy and Polyeuktos the Martyrs


To Timothy
Timothy, the burnt one,
Where will we lay you, having obtained an all-honorable end?

Saint Timothy was imprisoned for confessing Christ, and after various cruel tortures he completed his martyrdom by being cast into flames. This took place in Mauritania of North Africa.


To Polyeuktos
What was your end Polyeuktos of Caesarea?
You entered the flames, finding a prayerful end.

Saint Polyeuktos contested in Caesarea, and after various tortures that he endured for his faith in Christ, he also completed his martyrdom by being cast into flames.

In this manner these two holy Martyrs received crowns from the Lord. Both are celebrated by the holy Church on December 19th.
