From the Menaion - 9 February


On 9 February, we commemroate the holy martyr Nicephoros.

He who bore the name of victory from infancy, became a true trophy-bearing victor in the eyes of God, but not in the sight of the executioner. On the ninth, Nicephoros bared his neck to the sword.

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