The Holy Martyrs Sarbilos and Bebea –

Commemorated on October 15

      The Holy Martyrs Sarbilos and Bebea – were brother and sister by birth, suffering in the II Century under the emperor Trajan for confessing Christianity. The Martyr Sarbilos was an idolous priest at Edessa, but having been converted to Christ by a certain bishop, he accepted Baptism with his sister. Pagans tortured the saints for a long while, and then beheaded them.
