Hieromartyr Silvanus of Gaza

The Holy Hieromartyr Silvanus of Gaza, was a native of the city of Gaza. He was first a soldier, then a priest. He was falsely accused of a crime and sentenced to labor in the copper mines. In spite of many tribulations, the saint did not renounce Christ. In his old age, he was beheaded together with forty other Christians.
