On August 8, 2020 (July 26, old style), the people honor the memory of St. Hermolaus of Nicomedia
Nicomedian martyrs – there were many of them who suffered for the faith. Nicomedia in the IV century was ruled by Maximilian, a cruel ruler, fanatically devoted to the pagan gods. One day in 302, Christians gathered in the church of Nicomedia. Maximilian demanded from them sacrifice to the pagan gods, but the Christians refused him.

Twenty thousand Christians suffered then for their faith, and only Ermolai, Ermippus and Ermokrat managed to escape from the burning church.

And after him all three teachers of the faith of Christ were taken. They refused to deny Christ even on pain of death. And then Maximilian sentenced them to death.
