Coptic Synaxarium (Coptic Orthodox Calendar)

3 Paramhat
(The Third Day of the Blessed Month of Baramhat)

 

The Martyrdom of St. Porphyry

On this day also St. Porphyry (Porphorius) was martyred. He was one of the most nobles of Banias, most charitable and caring for the poor. He visited those in prison because of their debts and paid off their obligations. When the era of persecution started, it was called in every place to worship the idols. The Saint heard that the prince was passing by, he stood in front of his house and shouted in his face, saying: "I am Christian." After many failed trials from the prince to dissuade him on changing his faith, the prince ordered his neck to be cut off. The Saint received the crown of life, and the people of his town took his body, and shrouded it with expensive shrouds.

May his prayers be with us. Amen.
