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 Myriad (or Ten Thousand) Martyrs

Holy Myriad Martyrs (Feast Day - June 13)

Verses

Victorious a myriad fell by the sword,
Fallen also were the victorious phalanx of God.

The Holy Myriad (or Ten Thousand) Martyrs met their end by the sword.

We do not know when or where their martyrdom took place or who they were, but we similarly commemorate 10,000 Martyrs two other times in the ecclesiastical calendar, on March 18th and July 10th.
