Martyr Alexander of Macedonia

The Holy Martyr Alexander was a presbyter in the city of Pidna, not far from Thessalonica. The saint converted many pagans to Christianity by his preaching. During the persecution against Christians under the emperor Maximian Galerius (305-311), St Alexander was subjected to fierce tortures, and then beheaded.
