Saint Victor of Damascus (November 11)


Life of the Saint

Saints Victor served as a soldier in the Roman army during the reign of Emperor Antoninus (138-161). He was converted to Christianity and was eventually tortured.

Many idolaters accepted Christianity through his witness.

The pagans arrested Saint Victor as a Christian and cut off his fingers, put out his eyes, and beheaded him in Damascus.

Kontakion in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone
As godly-minded athletes and Martyrs who strove for piety, the Church doth honour and glorify this day the godly contests and travails of Menas the prizewinner, noble Victor, brave Vincent, and valiant Stephanie, and lovingly doth cry out and glorify Christ, the Friend of man.
