Martyrdom of St. Agabius, the Soldier, and his Sister Thecla
On this day also, St. Agabius, the Soldier, and his pious sister Thecla, were martyred. They lived during the time of Julian the Infidel, and they confessed the Lord Christ before him. He cast them to the lions, and they received the crowns of martyrdom. May their prayers be with us and Glory be to God forever. Amen.
