New Martyr Chrestos at Constantinople (1748)

Commemorated on February 12

Kristo was born an Albanian Serb. He lived in Constantinople and was a gardener. Slandered by the Turks that he desired to accept the Moslem faith, St. Kristo was turned over to the court and courageously confessed his Christian faith before it. For this they subjected the holy martyr to terrible tortures and later they beheaded him in 1748.
