The Holy Martyrs Avercius and Helen

Commemorated on May 26

      The Holy Martyrs Avercius and Helen, by tradition, were children of the holy Disciple Alphaeus. For confessing faith in Christ Jesus, Saint Avercius was bound naked amidst a bee-hive and died a martyr from the sting of the bees. His sister, Saint Helen, was pelted with stones.

1996-2001 by translator Fr. S. Janos.
