From the Menaion - 15 February


On 15 February, we commemorate the holy apostle Onesimos, the disciple of the holy Paul

In martyrdom, as an athlete, Onesimos stretched out on the ground his legs, which had been so prompt to run the race of holy Paul; and they shattered them with stones. On the fifteenth, he won the laurel wreath and victory hymn.

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