Saint Máximo of Jerusalén

May 5th IV century Confesor Obispo

Commemoration of St. Max, Bishop of Jerusalem, who was condemned by Maximino Daya Caesar to forced labor in the mines, once they had ripped out an eye and burned a foot with a hot iron. Achieved freedom, you could go from there and he was appointed Bishop of the Church of Jerusalem, where, with the prestige of their glorious confession, rested in peace (c. 350).
