The Orthodox Church today honors the memory of the Martyrs Nazarios, Gervasios, Protasios and Celsius and Saint Cosmas the Hymnographer, Bishop of Maiuma.
The parents of Nazarios were probably disciples of the Apostle Peter and he inherited the virtues of the Christian faith from them. He remained pure and blameless and when he turned 20, he distributed his possessions to the poor and began touring, preaching the Gospel of love.
In Mediolanum he met two pious men, Protasios and Gervasios. There, all three together, preached the Divine Word and succeeded in bringing many people closer to Jesus Christ.
Nazarios then went to France, where he met Celsius. Returning to Mediolanum, today’s Milan, he was arrested along with Protasios, Gervasios and Celsius and were beheaded after refusing to betray their faith in the resurrected Jesus Christ.
