May his intercession be with us. Amen.
Martyrdom of St.Apamon (Abba Amoun)
On this day also, St. Apamon (Abba
Amoun), who was from the city of Tarnut, was martyred. This saint came
to Upper Egypt, and he saw the tortures which were being inflicted by the
infidels upon the holy martyrs. He went to Arianus, the governor of Ansena
(Antinoe), and confessed the Lord Christ before him. Arianus tortured him
severely, by beating him, combing him by iron combs, and drove sharp long
nails through his body. The Lord Christ strengthened and healed him. Then,
arianus sent him to Alexandria. The angel of the Lord appeared to him,
encouraged, and strengthened him. There he was tortured much and many were
martyred because of him. Among them was a virgin, whose name was Theophila,
she came and stood up before the governor, confessed the Lord Christ, and
admonished him for his worship of the idols. He cast her in the fire but
the Lord saved her, and finally they cut off her head as they cut also
the head of St. Apamon.
May there prayers be with us and Glory be to God forever. Amen.
