The Holy Disciple Clement
Commemorated on September 10
The Holy Disciple Clement was bishop in Sardica (an ancient wealthy city of Lydia in Asia Minor). The holy Apostle Paul makes mention of his name in the Epistle to the Philippians (Phil. 4: 3). Addressing a certain "sincere co-worker of his", Paul entreats him: "Assist them, which did asceticise and evangelise together with me and with Clement and my other co-workers, whose names be in the Book of Life" (the account about the Assemblage-Sobor of the Seventy Disciples is situated under 4 January).
