This glorious Saint was born and lived on the island of Cyprus. He was born of simple peasant parents, who lived and worked in the countryside, and he was and remained simple and humble till the day he died. In his youth he married and had children. When his wife died, he completely devoted himself to service to God. For his great devoutness he was elected Bishop of the city of Tremithus. Notwithstanding his episcopal rank, Saint Spyridon kept to his accustomed simple manner of life and continued to watch over his flock and work in the field himself. The greatest part of what he had gained he distributed to the poor, keeping only a small part for him. With God’s help he wrought many miracles: the heavens opened at the prayer of Saint Spyridon and God sent a gracious rain at the time of a terrible draught, he stopped the flow of the rushing river, he revived several dead men, he cured the Emperor Constantius of his illness, he could see and hear the angels of God, he could discern people’s hearts, he converted many to the true faith etc. (more…)

Memory of the Holy Martyrs of Tiberiopolis: Timothy and Theodore, bishops; Peter, John, Sergius, Theodore and Nicephorus, priests; Basil and Thomas, deacons; Hierotheus, Daniel, Chariton, Socrates, Comassius and Eusebius, monks; and Etimassius, who died by the sword

As the Emperor Julian the Apostate (361-3) wanted to compel all Christ’s faithful to turn back to idolatrous worship, these holy Martyrs, who were clergy from Nicaea and other places, sought refuge in Thessalonica. Finding no peace there, they made their way to Tiberiopolis (Strumica) and led and Apostolic life in that city for a short while, until the tyrant’s soldiers caught up with them and brought them back to Thessalonica, where they were called upon to deny Christ. This they refused to do, and so were beheaded.

The Fifteen Holy Hieromartyrs of Tiberiopolis to this day are venerated as patrons and protectors of Strumica. (more…)
