Synaxarion of the Holy Martyr Faustus

St. Faustus the Martyr (Feast Day - July 16)


For Faustus the cross was salvation,
To this he was affixed due to his faith.

He lived during the reign of Emperor Decius in the year 250. Apprehended for his faith in Christ, he confessed Christ with boldness. Therefore he was nailed to a cross and shot with arrows. For five days he was on the cross, then he delivered his holy soul into the hands of God, from whom he received the crown of the contest.
