Holy Venerable Martyr Zacharias

St. Zacharias the Venerable Martyr (Feast Day - October 21)

Verses

On the path to the sea Zacharias sang psalms,
By traversing this path you attained Heaven.

The Holy Venerable Martyr Zacharias met his end in the sea by drowning.*

Notes:

* There is another Zacharias who died as a martyr by drowning in the sea commemorated on October 22nd, however there he is simply called a martyr while here he is a venerable martyr, and they both have different iambic verses. They are probably the same person, though St. Nikodemos the Hagiorite says there are enough differences to indicate they are different people.
