From the Menaion - 10 March


On 10 March, we commemorate the holy martyr Codratos of Corinth and his companions: Anectos, Paul, Denis, Cyprian and Crescent.

Fro having shipwrecked the doctrines of the pagans, O Codratos, you were drowned in a stream of your own blood. Anectos and two friends submitted to the same fate: to die for God did not seem improper to them. Seeing Crescent perish under the sword, Cyprian quickly added his own death to the first. On March tenth, Codratos, like a Corinthian column, lost his capital under the two-edged sword.

By the prayers of Your saints, O Christ our God, have pity on us and save us. Amen.
