THE HOLY MARTYR LEONIDES

April 22

From the Prologue

Leonides was the father of Origen. He suffered for Christ in Alexandria in the year 202 A.D. He was condemned to death by an edict of the emperor but, before that, all of his property was confiscated. Origen wrote to his father in prison: "Father, do not concern yourself over us and do not avoid martyrdom because of us," i.e., because of his children.
