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 11: $2740)

Synaxarion of the Holy Martyrs Nestor and Tribimios

Sts. Nestor and Tribimios (Feast Day - March 2)

Verses

The neck of Nestor was struck by the sword, 
A similar wound crushed Tribimios.

These Saints were from the land of the Cibyrrhaeots, from Perge in Pamphylia. During the reign of Emperor Decius, in the year 251, they were betrayed by the idolaters, and scourged with dry ox-hide. After this they were suspended, and were flayed to the point where their inwards parts were exposed. Because they remained steadfast in the faith of Christ, they were beheaded, and in this way the renowned ones received the crown of martyrdom.
