Product Description

The holy glorious martyr Sebastian, whose memory is honored by our Orthodox Church on December 18th, is estimated to have been martyred in 295-296 A.D. After the martyric end of Saint Sebastian a mandate was issued that his honorable body be thrown into a ditch to prevent an event of worship during his burial by Christians. But the night after his martyrdom, the Saint appeared in a vision to a pious woman named Lucina, and having showed her the exact place where his body could be found, he commanded her to bury him in a crypt, and so it was done.

Among Orthodox in Greece Saint Sebastian is honored also with a sacred church bearing his name in Linopoti on the island of Kos, which can be found within the Army Camp “11 Palaiologos”, and it is the only Orthodox Church that honors the Saint. He is also honored with great reverence in Constantinople, where beside the Sacred Church of Saint Demetrios Sarmasikiou there is the famous Holy Water of Saint Sebastian. According to tradition, in the early 19th century the Saint appeared in a vision to a woman and showed her the spot where the Holy Water could be found.

Feast Day: 18th December
