Coptic Synaxarium (Coptic Orthodox Calendar)

8 Apip
(The Eighth Day of the Blessed Month of Abib)

 

The Martyrdom of St. Balanah, the Priest

On this day also, St. Balanah the priest, was martyred. He was from the city of Bara, of the diocese of Sakha. When he heard of the persecution of the faithful and the slaying of the saints, he distributed all his money to the poor and the needy. He then went to "Antinoe" (Ansena), and confessed the Lord Christ before the governor. He tortured St. Balanah much with different kinds of tortures until he delivered up his soul in the hands of the Lord.

May his prayers be with us, Amen.
