Today is the 6th of the blessed month of Misra, may God make it always received, year after year, with reassurance and tranquility, while our sins are forgiven by the tender mercies of our God, my fathers and brothers. Amen.

Martyrdom of St. Julietta

On this day, St. Julietta was martyred. She was born in the city of Caesaria, in Cappadocia, to rich Christian parents. She inherited great wealth from them. An oppressor defrauded her from her wealth by bribing false witnesses against her. When that evil man knew that she wished to inform against him, and expose his lies and extortion, he informed the governor of Cappadocia that she was Christian. She said within herself that the temporal wealth of this world is nothing to make her lose herself for, but if she gain the eternal life to come, no one would be able to take it from her. When she came before the governor, she confessed the name of Christ. The governor cast her in fire, and she delivered up her pure spirit in the hands of the Lord. She received instead of her temporal possessions, the eternal life and St. Basil the Great praised her immensely.
May her prayers be with us and Glory be to God forever. Amen.
