The Holy Martyrs Peter, Dionysius, Andrew, Paul and Christina
(May 18)

Peter-a young and gifted man; Dionysius-a nobleman; Andrew and Paul - soldiers; and Christina - a sixteen-year-old girl; they all courageously confessed Christ the Lord and underwent torture and death for His name in the year 250. One Nicomachus, who was tortured with them, denied Christ under torture, and instantly lost his mind, tearing at his body with his teeth and foaming at the mouth until he breathed his last.
