Friday, 7th March 2014 --- 28 Amshir 1730
Day 28 of the Blessed Coptic Month of Amshir, may God make it always received, year after year, with reassurance and tranquility, while our sins after forgiven by the tender mercies of our God my fathers and brothers.
The Tewnty-Eighth Day of the Blessed Month of Amshir
Martyrdom of St.Theodore the Roman
On this day St. Theodore (Theodoros), the Roman,
was martyred. He was from the City of Astir (Peshotep) during the reign
of the Emperors Maximianus and Diocletian. When they were informed that
the saint did not adore their idols, they brought him and asked him to
worship the idols but he refused. They promised him precious gifts but
he did not hearken to them. They tortured him by pressing his body in the
Hinbazeen, and hacking parts of his body. He was burned with fire and beat
him with whips. He endured all that because of his love for the Lord Christ
Who sent His angels to comfort and strengthen him. Finally he was beheaded
and received the crown of martyrdom.
May His prayers be with us and Glory be to our God forever. Amen.
