Martyrdom of the One Hundred and Fifty believers by the hand of the King of Persia

On this day also is the commemoration of the incident of the martyrdom of one hundred and fifty believers by the king of Persia. This king besieged Christian cities which were near the borders of his country, and captured many of them. When they refused to worship the sun and the stars, he commanded to cut off their heads, and they received the crowns of martyrdom.

May their prayers be with us and glory be to God forever. Amen.
