Orthodox Tidbits Holy Martyr Sebastian
This glorious saint was born in Italy and brought up in the city of Milan. While still young,
he dedicated himself to military service. Being educated, handsome and courageous, he received the favor
of Emperor Diocletian, who appointed him captain of his imperial guard. Secretly he confessed the Christian
Faith and prayed to the Living God. As an honorable, just and merciful man, Sebastian was greatly beloved
by his soldiers. Whenever he could, he saved Christians from torture and death, and, when he was unable to
do so, he exhorted them to die for Christ the Living God without turning back.
