Martyrs of Cappadocia

Mesopotamia wasn’t the only part of the Christian world impacted by the persecutions of Galerius in the year 303. In Cappadocia (located in what is now west-central Turkey), a group of faithful Christians who were forced to endure torture before finally being murdered on account of Christ.
Prayer of the Day
Good and Gracious God,
you nourish the Church through the witness of her martyrs.
May we, who today celebrate the Martyrs of Cappadocia,
be ever faithful to the Gospel:
clinging to the knowledge of your truth,
enduring all persecutions and hardships,
and coming at the last great day to eternal life.
We make our prayer through your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God,
now and ever,
and unto ages of ages.
