St. Abdiesus, Confessor and Martyr

St. Abdiesus, pray for us!

St. Abdiesus, pray for us!

Also called Hebed Jesus, a deacon in the Christian community of Persia who was caught up in the persecutions conducted by King Shapur II. Records indicate that Abdiesus was accompanied in his martyrdom by Abrosimus, Acepsimus, Azadanes, Azades, Bicor, Mareas, Milles, and a women named Tarbula. Some were Persian courtiers, others priests and bishops. Tarbula was the sister of St. Simeon, and suffered a particularly cruel death by sawing.

REFLECTION:

” To die is gain and to live is Christ”, as what  St. Paul said. Death is just another phase in life that we should encounter whether we like it or not and we must prepare for it always in the spirit of vigilance.  Are you prepare to die now if God calls you to His side?

PRAYER:

O God, who were pleased to give light to your Church by adorning blessed Abdiesus with the victory of martyrdom, graciously grant that, as he imitated the Lord’s Passion, so we may, by following in his footsteps, be worthy to attain eternal joys. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
