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 9: $2680)

Holy Martyrs Stephen, Barnabas, Trophimos, Dorymedon, Kosmas, Damian, Savvas, Vassa, Abramios, and others with them

Holy Martyrs Stephen, Barnabas, Trophimos, Dorymedon, Kosmas, Damian,
Savvas, Vassa, Abramios, and others with them (Feast Day - October 31)

Verses

Nine athletes together with a multitude of athletes,
Equally shared in crowns in the heavens.

The Holy Martyrs Stephen, Barnabas, Trophimos, Dorymedon, Kosmas, Damian, Savvas, Vassa, Abramios, and others with them, died for their faith in Christ, though we do not have any further details. 

On September 19th we commemorate the Holy Martyrs Trophimos, Dorymedon and Sabbatios, and they are probably the Holy Martyrs Trophimos, Dorymedon and Savvas that we commemorate today.
