Martyr Theodore of Alexandria



This St Theodore of Alexandria is not the same person as St Theodore the Bishop of Alexandria (December 3).

Today’s saint was a simple Christian who was thrown into prison for confessing Christ. Later, he was tortured and thrown into the sea, but remained unharmed.

St Theodore was beheaded and buried in Alexandria.
