From the Menaion - 17 February


On 17 February, we commemorate the holy great-martyr Theodore the Recruit.

Shortly after being recruited, the soldier Theodore was immediately burned for the sake of the One whom he worshiped. On the seventeenth, he became a sweet-smelling holocaust.

By his holy prayers, O our God, take pity on us and save us. Amen.
