The Holy Martyrs Theodore and John.

Commemorated July 12 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

Father and son, they settled after their baptism in the pagan city of Kiev. The infuriated pagans pulled their house down about their ears, and the two of them perished for the sake of Christ. Their relics are preserved in St Antony's caves. The barren and women who miscarry pray especially to them.
