Coptic Synaxarium (Coptic Orthodox Calendar)

1 Paramhat
(The First Day of the Blessed Month of Baramhat)

 

The Martyrdom of St. Alexandrus

On this day also St. Alexandrus, the soldier, was martyred during the reign of the infidel Emperor Maximianus. When this saint refused to raise incense for the idols, the Emperor punished him. The Emperor ordered him hung by his hands and a large heavy stone tied to his feet. He ordered him to be beaten, his sides burned, and placed lit torches against his face. When all these tortures did not dissuade him, the Emperor ordered him beheaded and he received the crown of martyrdom.

May his intercession be with us. Amen.
