Saint for April 2

This is a very short account of a brother in Christ that stood firm in faith not fear.

Martyr Polycarp of Alexandria

Commemorated on April 2

The Holy Martyr Polycarp suffered for his bold denunciation of the emperor Maxmian (305-313) for spilling innocent Christian blood in the city of Alexandria.

He openly confessed himself a Christian and went to voluntary torture. After cruel sufferings, the martyr was beheaded.

Martyr Polycarp of Alexandria pray for us for health and faithfulness in Christ!
