Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 6: $2350)

Verses

The eight numbered chorus died by the sword,
The eight thus finding eternal life.

We do not know details of the lives and contests of these Holy Martyrs, except that in Nicaea of Bithynia they were beheaded by the sword for confessing their faith in Christ.
