From the Menaion - 20 March


On 20 March, we commemorate the holy fathers martyred by the Saracens at the Monastery of Saint Sabbas the Sanctified.

Because of their ascetic labors, as well as for the blood they shed, the fathers found a double crown in Heaven on March twentieth, in the presence of the Mighty One, as a reward for their twice-tested Faith.

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