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 4: $1750)

Holy Martyr Emmanuel

St. Emmanuel the Martyr (Feast Day - March 20)

Verses

By the sword I shed forth a cup,
Emmanuel declared of his blood.

The Holy Martyr Emmanuel met his end by the sword.

This is probably the same Saint as the Holy Martyr Manuel commemorated on March 26th. Even though there he is known as Manuel, both Holy Martyrs have the same iambic verses.
