- Pater Mucius
A notorious robber and thief, he converted to Christianity, brought to the faith by Saint Copra. Desert hermit in Egypt. At age 75, he was arrested in the persecutions of Julian the Apostate for refusing to sacrifice to idols. Julian sent Copra, who had renounced Christianity, to convince Patermutius to do the same. Instead, Patermutius brought Copra back to the faith. Thrown into a flaming furnace for his defiance, he was unharmed by the fire and was seen standing and praying; this show of faith and strength brought Saint Alexander of Egypt to convert. Patermutius was then pulled from the furnace and executed. Martyr.
