Commemoration of the holy Martyrs Saints Hippolytus and Cassian|
There is a commemoration today of the holy martyrs St. Hippolytus and St. Cassian. Hippolytus is one of the saints associated with St. Lawrence, who baptized him, and whom he followed to martyrdom in 258. St. Cassian was a schoolmaster, and the official who sentenced him to death for being a Christian and had him murdered by his own pupils. He repented and gave his life for Christ.
