Holy Hieromartyr John of Persia

St. John of Persia (Feast Day - November 29)


And John the sacrificer of Christ,
Had his wages counted making him rich.

This is probably the same Hieromartyr John the Bishop commemorated with James the Presbyter on November 1st. They suffered torture and martyrdom by beheading in fourth century Persia under King Shapur, after having converted many to the faith of Christ.
