|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 22 of October, repeating indefinitely

Philip, a venerable old man, bishop of Heraclea, the metropolis of Thrace, was an illustrious martyr of Christ in the persecution of Diocletian. He was careful to train many disciples in the study of sacred learning, and in the practice of solid piety. Two of his disciples, Serverus, a priest, and Hermes, a deacon, had the happiness to be companions in martyrdom. In 304, they were ordered to be burned “that others may learn to obey.”
