THE HOLY MARTYR ACACIUS

May 7

From the Prologue

St. Acacius was a Roman officer during the reign of Emperor Maximian. Answering for his faith in Christ at the trial he said that he inherited this devout Faith from his parents and was strengthened in it by witnessing the many miraculous healings from the relics of Christian saints. After courageously enduring great tortures in the Thracian city of Pyrrinthus, Acacius was taken to Byzantium where he endured new tortures until he was finally beheaded. He suffered honorably and took up habitation in the eternal kingdom of joy in the year 303 A.D.
