Book of Saints – Meletius – 24 May


(Saint) Martyr (May 24) (Date unknown) This Saint was an officer in the Imperial army who with two hundred and fifty-two of his soldiers, suffered the death penalty as being avowed Christians. The Roman Martyrology gives neither time nor place, and the details found in the Greek Menologies do not seem trustworthy. They aver that the Martyrs suffered at Ancyra in Galatia, but also fail to indicate any date.
