From the Menaion - 15 March


On 15 March, we commemorate the holy martyr Agapios and his companions: Paesis, Romulos, Timolaos, the two Alexanders and the two Dionysioses.

The martyr Agapios was eager to die, and thus he enjoyed the divine banquet more quickly. Paesis and three others, weaving their crowns, became fellow citizens with the angels and the saints. The two Denises struggled along with the two Alexanders, and their shared pain led to shared honor. Struck by the sword on the fifteenth, Agapios and his companions journeyed to Heaven.

By their holy prayers, O our God, have pity on us and save us. Amen.
