Holy Venerable Martyr John the Egyptian and the Forty Martyrs With Him

St. John of Egypt together with Forty Martyrs (Feast Day - September 20)


John together with the decad of four,
Firmly approached decapitation by the sword.

Because the lawless and impious Maximian could not endure the boldness through Christ of Saint John, he ordered that he be killed by a sword with forty others in the year 295. In this way the blessed ones received crowns of martyrdom.
