The Holy Martyr Serapion, suffered for Christ before the
Emperor Severus (193-211). As a Christian he was brought to judgment
before the governor Achilles. The holy martyr firmly proclaimed to the
pagans his faith in Christ, and he was subjected to inhuman torments.
Afterwards, he was thrown into prison.
Healed by the Lord Jesus
Christ, he was brought to the judgment place and he presented himself
before the judge completely healthy. The enraged pagans sentenced the
saint to be burned alive. In the midst of the flames, he gave up his
soul to God (+ ca. 205).
