Athnasius The Martyr Bishop

It is mentioned in the Coptic Synaxarium (29th Mesra) about some one who told the ruler of Esna Ariana that Bishop Athnasius had baptized the daughter of the minister Antonius. The ruler asked for the Bishop and his two disciples Grasimos and Thawateetus. He ordered them to present incense to the idols. Due to their firm rejection to do so, he tortured them. Finally he beheaded them and this awarded them the crown of the martyrdom. May the Blessings of their prayers be with all of us AMEN.
