Свети мъченици Трофим и Теофил
Светите мъченици Трофим и Теофил пострадали при царуването на Диоклетиан (царувал от 284 до 305 г.). Заедно с тях пострадали и верните слуги, и истинни Христови раби - всичко тринадесет души. След като отказали да се подчинят на заповедта на нечестивия мъчител - не принесли мерзки жертви на бездушните идоли - и не пожелали да се отрекат от Христа, те били окачени на дърво за мъчения; след това езичниците започнали да стържат телата им с остро желязо, хвърляли и камъни по мъчениците; накрая пребили пищялите им и ги хвърлили в огън. Но светците били запазени от всемогъщата Божия сила цели и невредими сред пламъците и излезли от огъня, без да пострадат. Тогава мъчителят, разпалил се с люта ярост като геенски огън, заповядал да умъртвят всички с меч. И честните глави на светците били отсечени за чест и слава на Главата на цялата Църква - нашия Господ Иисус Христос.
Свети свещеномъченик Аполинарий, епископ на Равена
Аполинарий Равенски (на гръцки: Απολλινάριος της Ραβένας; ?, Антиохия — 75 г., Равена) е християнски светец, който според преданията е първият епископ на италианския град Равена. Почита се като свещеномъченик и от Източноправославната църква и от Римокатолическата църква. Първото житие на Свети Аполинарий е написано от равенския епископ Мавро в средата на VII век.
One of the first great martyrs of the church. He was made Bishop of Ravenna by St. Peter himself. The miracles he wrought there soon attracted official attention, for they and his preaching won many converts to the Faith, while at the same time bringing upon him the fury of the idolaters, who beat him cruelly and drove him from the city. He was found half dead on the seashore, and kept in concealment by the Christians, but was captured again and compelled to walk on burning coals and a second time expelled. But he remained in the vicinity, and continued his work of evangelization. We find him then journeying in the province of Aemilia. A third time he returned to Ravenna. Again he was captured, hacked with knives, had scalding water poured over his wounds, was beaten in the mouth with stones because he persisted in preaching, and then, loaded with chains, was flung into a horrible dungeon to starve to death; but after four days he was put on board ship and sent to Greece. There the same course of preachings, and miracles, and sufferings continued; and when his very presence caused the oracles to be silent, he was, after a cruel beating, sent back to Italy. All this continued for three years, and a fourth time he returned to Ravenna. By this time Vespasian was Emperor, and he, in answer to the complaints of the pagans, issued a decree of banishment against the Christians. Apollinaris was kept concealed for some time, but as he was passing out of the gates of the city, was set upon and savagely beaten, probably at Classis, a suburb, but he lived for seven days, foretelling meantime that the persecutions would increase, but that the Church would ultimately triumph. It is not certain what was his native place, though it was probably Antioch. Nor is it sure that he was one of the seventy-two disciples of Christ, as has been suggested. The precise date of his consecration cannot be ascertained, but he was Bishop of Ravenna for twenty-six years.
