DEC 13: COMMEMORATION OF HOLY MARTYRS EUSTRATIUS, AUXENTIUS, EUGENE, MARDARIUS & ORESTES

On this day, we commemorate five Holy Martyrs. They were also known as the Five Companiouns and their names were Eustratius, Auxentius, Eugene, Mardarius, and Orestes. They suffered for Christ under the then Emperor Diocletian at Sebaste, in Armenia. All undergone torture for proclaiming themselves Christians. They endured harsh and unimaginable tortures, but all surrendered their souls to God and who we commemorate today for their steadfast faith.
