Holy Martyr Zacharias

St. Zacharias the Martyr (Feast Day - October 22)


Zacharias was a divine plunger,
He was called to plunge into the sea.

The Holy Martyr Zacharias met his end in the sea.

On October 21st we commemorate another Zacharias who met his end at sea. It is not known if they are the same person, since the one we commemorate today is just known as a Martyr while the one we commemorate on October 21st is known as a Venerable Martyr. Both also have different iambic verses.
