8 Paonah
(The Eighth Day of the Blessed Month of Baounah)

 

The Martyrdom of George (Girgis) the new martyr

This day also marks the martyrdom of George (Girgis), the new martyr. He was an Ishmealite as was his father. He believed in the Lord Christ and became a monk. They seized, and punished him severely. They took him before the Governor El-Zaher, where he confessed his faith in the Lord Christ. The Governor attempted to make him forsake his faith by offering him expensive gifts, but he refused. The Governor ordered to cut his neck off, and he received the crown of martyrdom in the year 1103 A.M. (1387 A.D.).

May his intercession be with us and Glory be to God forever. Amen.
