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 6: $2350)

Holy Martyrs Cyprian and Juliana

Sts. Cyprian and Juliana the Martyrs (Feast Day - November 1)


Juliana remained steadfast upon seeing the fire,
Brave Cyprian also was steadfast.

The Holy Martyrs Cyprian and Juliana met their end by fire.

These Saints are probably the same as the Holy Martyrs Kyriaina and Juliana who are also celebrated today, with the names of either Kyriaina (Cyrenia) or Kyprianos (Cyprian) being mistakenly copied. In the Menologion of Basil II, Kyriaina is depicted as a male despite it being a female name. Both pairs of Saints met their end by fire.
