The Holy Martyr Peter Apselamus
A native of Eleutheropolis in Palestine, he suffered as a youth for the Christian faith in the year 311, under the Emperor Maximian. After terrible tortures, he was condemned to death. Hearing the sentence pronounced, he cried out with great joy: `My one desire is to die for my God!' He was crucified, like his Lord, and gave up his spirit on the cross.
