Book of Saints – Menignus

Saint Menignus of PariumArticle

(Saint) Martyr (March 15) (3rd century) An Asiatic, by trade a fuller. He, in times of persecution, ministered to the suffering Christians to the utmost of his power. It is related that in A.D. 250, when the Decian persecution broke out, Menignus received a Divine inspiration to go before the judge and to confess the Christian Faith. This he did; and was sentenced with the rest. After the usual scourging, the tradition is that his fingers and toes were cut off before he was beheaded. Many miracles wrought at his tomb in the neighbourhood of Constantinople attracted to it in Christian times numerous pilgrims.
