Saint Urban, Bishop of Macedonia


Upon expiring Urban was in the hands of the Angels,
Who lived his life according to the Angels.

Saint Urban, Bishop of Macedonia, met his end in peace.

The first Bishop of Macedonia was Saint Urban, who was ordained by the Apostle Andrew and is numbered as one of the Seventy Apostles. He is commemorated on October 31st. It is not likely they are the same person, since he is said to have been martyred, while the Saint Urban commemorated today is said to have reposed in peace.
