Holy Martyr Synetus

St. Synetus the Martyr (Feast Day - February 22)

Verses

Synetus chants although he is slain by the sword,
"I beheld men acting foolishly and I pined away."

Saint Synetus was martyred by being beheaded with the sword. This may be the same person as the Holy Martyr Synetus of Rome, a Reader, tortured and beheaded for refusing to sacrifice to idols in the third century, who celebrates on December 12. See Holy Martyr Synetus of Rome.
