The PriestMartyr Alexander, Presbyter in Sidon

Commemorated on March 15

      The PriestMartyr Alexander, Presbyter in Sidon, suffered for Christ during the time of persecution under the emperor Aurelian (270-275). The saint was interrogated by the governor Antoninus and given over to fierce tortures.
      But miraculously preserved by the Lord, the saint with surprising endurance underwent all the tortures, and finally, he was beheaded. And just as the torturer Antoninus went to go from the judgement place, he became possessed of demons and perished in frenzied convulsions.
