Synaxarion of the Holy Martyrs Crescens, Paul and Dioskoridos of Rome

Sts. Crescens, Paul and Dioskoridos (Feast Day - May 28)


In the furnace Dioskoridos was Shadrach,
Paul was Meschach and Crescens was Abednego.

These Saints lived in Old Rome, where through their teachings many unbelievers were offered to Christ. The Greeks had them arrested, harshly beat them, then placed them in a lit furnace. In this way the renowned ones received the crown of martyrdom.
