Commemorated on 13th of December

Saints Eustratios, Afxentios, Eugenios, Mardarios and Orestes martyred during the cruel persecution of Christians under Diocletian.

Efstratios, who was a senior officer, was arrested by Duke Lysias. He, after torturing him in the most horrible way, then sent him to the prefect Agrikola. Famous for his cruelty towards Christians, he made Eustratios walk with iron shoes, which had pointed nails inside. Then he finished it, after throwing it into the fire.

Afxentios, who was a priest and a fellow citizen of Efstratios, was pressured by the ruler to convert with many tempting promises. But the worthy minister of Christ answered: “I do not need to say many words to Lysias. In this life I belong to Christ and I will be His until death. And if you give me innumerable beatings and wounds, and if you melt me ​​with fire and iron, my Christ is omnipotent and His Cross is irresistible. Afxentios himself is weak. But the mind of the Christian Afxentios will never bend ". The ruler, enraged by the answer, immediately beheaded him.

Mardario, after piercing his ankles, hung him upside down and burned him.

Officer Eugenios, after cutting his tongue and arms and breaking his legs, exhaled.

The soldier Orestes was killed, after he was laid on an incandescent bed.

Can be hung on a wall or placed on a flat surface.
