Book of Saints – Marcian – 11 July


(Saint) Martyr (July 11) (3rd century) A youth of Iconium in Lycaonia (Asia Minor) who bravely confessed Christ, notwithstanding the savage tortures to which he was subjected. Before he was finally given over to the executioner, his tongue had been cut out to make him cease from the prayers he addressed in a loud voice to his Redeemer (A.D. 243).
